'Because Dymphna Cusack refused her publisher's request to write her autobiography, Norman Frehill, who has known her longest over her writing life, interviewed her and from the results wrote this book.  He has brought the experience of a lifetime's journalism to a labour of love - his account of Dymphna's life with him and the genesis of the works that have moved so many people to compassion and understanding and have won her an honoured place among the great writers that Australia has given to the world.'
