They grew up on stories about Charlotte's life of love grief and violence - and her struggle to assert an independent spirit. Not only a bestselling author she was also an early Australian artist and a pioneer in the fight for women's legal rights. In SEARCHING FOR CHARLOTTE Kate and Belinda embark on a voyage of discovery that investigates family history writing motherhood what changes and what stays the same. It is a journey that will transform everything they thought they knew about their family . . .
