Ringwood, Victoria: Penguin Books, 1984. 300 g.; X, 378 pages, four pages following -- other books in the "Australian Selection" series of books published by Penguin, preface and afterword by Helen Thomson. Colour illustrated front cover, with green and brown titles to the front panel and black and white titles to the backstrip. Some creasing to the book corners and browning to the text block edges and age toning of the internal text otherwise no damage of note. " The Commonwealth of Columba has been isolated from the rest of the world in Valley in North America. When Australian traveller Hugh Keith chances upon it, he discovers a utopian community in which "handfasting" -- trial marriage -- is a central feature. He meets Lilliard Abercrombie, Coloumba's most talented actress and storyteller, who has to choose between her simple home and Victorian civilisation. The author, Katherine Helen Spence, a successful nineteenth-century novelist, journalist and social reformer, put the dangerously radical novel away after it was rejected in a literary competition. Not published until now, Handfasted includes her speculations on social progress in the form of a convincing romantic novel." -- from the rear panel blurb.
