Description - An Australian Girl in London by Louise Mack

An Australian Girl in London, first published in 1902, is an endearing look at the journey of self-discovery that many young women of means made to the heart of Empire around the time of Federation. Its author, Louise Mack, a friend and rival of Ethel Turner, captures the experience of a provincial young woman immersing herself in the epic metropolis of London - its hard urban edges, and the challenges it poses for colonial talent, but also its rich history and culture.

Sylvia Leighton embarks on an increasingly familiar narrative in turn-of-the-century Australian fiction, travelling to England to establish herself in a country she has long dreamed of visiting. Fellow Australian Emmie Jones joins her, and the two girls share a boarding house and a very close bond.

'The first impressions of a thoughtful and observant person are worth having, especially when they are pleasantly and vividly recorded.' - Sydney Morning Herald
