'Portrait in a Mirror is not only a fascinating story but also a remarkable self-portrait, told through letters, diaries and speeches as well as her own commentaries, of a watching woman: dispassionate observer of the famous people and great events of her time, who was unaffected by her varying environments and remained, as she had begun, a typical scion of that early colonial stock - intelligent, literate, strongly-opinioned - and staunchly Australian.'
