'As well as describing these women's public activities, Diane Langmore explores their private lives; their romances with the men who were to become prime ministers, their marriages, the joys and anxieties of childbirth and family life, the losses and infidelities.
Taking us from the early days of Federation, these revealing portraits hold up a mirror to a changing Australia.'
