    A Remarkable Woman
    A Remarkable Woman
    From postwar Paris to Australia to find love, fashion and freedom One woman's quest to follow her head, and her heart. Twenty-six-year-old Frenchwoman Avril Montdidier sails from Paris to Australia with a suitcase and a dream: to start her own fashion business. 1950s Melbourne is very different from the chic atelier of Dior where Avril once worked, but she is determined, courageous and resourceful. When personal circumstances force her to flee Melbourne, she travels to a cattle station in southern Queensland to work as a governess. It is here Avril meets Tim: the eldest son of her benefactor and heir to Monaghan Station. Avril must grapple with her twin desires - her love for Tim, who is set to marry someone else, and her yearning for independence. Praise for A Remarkable Woman 'Delightful! Fashion, French culture and sweeping Australian landscapes - what's not to love! A glorious nod to the strong migrant women who made their mark on the place they chose to call home - Australia. A fascinating look at the burgeoning cultural and fashion scene of Melbourne in the 1950s set against the vast, rugged and magnificent landscapes of Queensland's Darling Downs and the quintessential Australian experience of life on the land.' - Tania Blanchard
