This short story is part of a larger cycle of short works of fiction that use fairy-tale-infused stories to explore the relationship of the traditional fairy tale to Australian history, landscape, and identity. The work explores the ways in which various storytelling structures and strategies intersect and overlap in the life and imagination of a white colonial woman, both obscuring and revealing uncomfortable truths about women’s lives during the first century of the Australian colony.
