Lily Campbell's secret
(2019)
  • Jennifer Bryce
Abstract
It's 1913, and Lily’s comfortable middle-class Melbourne life is completely upended  As she sits in the hall of her private school, portraits of past headmistresses frowning at her, she realises the ‘glaring, unalterable fact’ that she is pregnant, the father a young stablehand called Bert. Her parents disown her: the first of many wrenching challenges she must face.  She marries Bert and they have a few months together in rural Woodend, where their child is born. When the war starts, Bert volunteers and Lily is thrown very much on her own resources. Once Bert returns home, Lily has to face the most momentous decision of her life.
