Summary
When Kate Grenville's mother died she left behind many fragments of memoir. These were the starting point for 'One Life,' the story of a woman whose life spanned a century of tumult and change. In many ways Nance's story echoes that of many mothers and grandmothers, for whom the spectacular shifts of the 20th century offered a path to new freedoms and choices. In other ways Nance was exceptional. In an era when women were expected to have no ambitions beyond the domestic, she ran successful businesses as a registered pharmacist, laid the bricks for the family home, and discovered her husband's secret life as a revolutionary. 'One Life' is an act of great imaginative sympathy, a daughter's intimate account of the patterns in her mother's life
