Beautiful, beautiful blurbs

So the blurbs for my book have arrived.

I can’t begin to explain how pleased, grateful and – well – humbled I’m feeling.

So I’ll stop explaining, and let you read them for yourself.

‘The triumphs and trials of Elizabeth Macarthur, a capable business woman and dedicated wife and mother, are given their due in this impressively researched biography.’
Brenda Niall

‘Finally, Elizabeth Macarthur steps out from the long shadow of her infamous, entrepreneurial husband. In Michelle Scott Tucker’s devoted hands, Elizabeth emerges as a canny businesswoman, charming diplomat, loving mother and indefatigable survivor.  A fascinating, faithful portrait of a remarkable woman and the young, volatile colony she helped to build.’
Clare Wright

‘An intimate portrait of a woman who changed herself and Australia… Michelle Scott Tucker makes Elizabeth Macarthur step off the page.’
David Hunt, Author of GIRT

Hard to believe that three years ago I blogged about Clare Wright’s online conversation with the participants of the HardCopy professional development program. And now here she is, generously blurbing my book. And Brenda Niall! And David Hunt!

Wow, just wow.

Let me tell you, this book writing thing is a hell of a ride.
