A Woman For All Seasons is a novel written by Australian author Elizabeth Haran and published in 2001 by Bastei Lübbe.
After being fired from every position she has held in England, Nola Grayson, a woman with revolutionary ideas on teaching, is hired as a teacher/governess to the Hartford children on Reinhart Station in outback Australia, or so she thought. When she arrives, she finds out a man was expected, and she is told to return home. Determined to stay, she has to fight the prejudices of the station owner and the children’s father, two men with dark secrets, as well as the elements of a drought stricken land. She also has to bond with the Hartford children and deal with cattle rustlers and being kidnapped by a tribal aborigine.
This book is set in Queensland’s Gulf Country. It is not uncommon for governesses to be hired on outback stations, but nowadays the children can do school work over the radio, with “School of the Air“. They can talk to the teacher in a class room hundreds of miles away. School work is sent out in the post.
