Listing Detail Tabs

Most of this story was placed fourth in the Rothman's Book of the Year Award's autobiographical section. Another section, the "Esther" stories, was a finalist in the Katherine Mansfield Award two years later - several chapters of "Esther" were broadcast on Jessica Weddell's Morning Hour story-time slot on 1YA.

Another earlier version of the book (in draft form) won the New Zealand Women Writers' Jubilee Contest in 1984.

"Your writing splendidly evokes the clash of cultures and its effects on a sensitive intelligent child growing to womanhood ... Outstanding, I thought, were the specifics of childhood, particularly such matters as Marie Stopes and her 'onions'.
