Between the Leaves is an intimate exploration into the lives of nine twentieth-century women – including Judith Wright, Katharine Susannah Prichard, Winifred Stephensen and Jean Galbraith – who wrote about their garden in their letters and diaries. This title provides a moving insight into these women’s lives, and seeks to understand the ways women were involved in transforming the Australian landscape, and creating within it places they called home. The writings are rich, diverse, eloquent and surprising, conveying a powerful sense of the importance of the garden and the writing of it. The collection reveals stories of grief, hope, friendship, separation, family, ageing, creativity, identity, and the value of tending new growth and the now consuming question of how we live in a changing climate.
