For Love Alone

Christina Stead
For Love Alone is the story of the intelligent and determined Teresa Hawkins, who believes in passionate love and yearns to experience it.
'In the harbour city's steamy, fecund heat, the air is thick with thwarted longing, the people on the tram smell like foxes, and the girls with their glossy hair talk of hope chests and fight down the dread of being left on the shelf.' from the Introduction by Drusilla Modjeska Superbly evoking life in Sydney and London in the 1930s, For Love Alone is the story of the intelligent and determined Teresa Hawkins, who believes in passionate love and yearns to experience it.

Reunited with Crow in London, she begins to realise that perhaps he is not as worthy of her affections as originally thought.
