Praed, Rosa. The Romance of a Station. V1. 23 Jun 2012
Rosa Campbell Praed (1851 - 1935), often credited as Mrs Campbell Praed (and also known as Rosa Caroline Praed), was an Australian novelist in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Her large bibliography covered multiple genres, and books for children as well as adults. She has been described as the first Australian novelist to achieve a significant international reputation.
"THE Romance of a Station" begins on the solid earth of experience, and wanders across the border-line into the misty cloud-region of Fancy and Fiction.
The opening chapters picture faithfully enough the scene of one of my own early homes, and describe life on an island which may be found marked on any map of Australia. Almost all the incidents are real, and even the most romantic of the episodes have their foundation in fact.
R. M. PRAED
