Born prematurely in the untamed Victorian bush, a tiny infant hovers between life and death, too weak to suckle from her mother.
Her grandmother invents a way to feed her. With patience and a determination, Juliet survives. Raped and pregnant at fifteen, and knowing nothing o

Only in middle-age does she finds her true self in away she could never have dreamed.

Comments & Reviews
Shirley Whiteway's novella, Juliet - The Hatmaker's Loves ... captured my interest and involvement in the first sentence. I was instantly in her 'place'. Rivetting!
-Diana Whaley, Broadcaster, Writer & Editor
Juliet is a charming and in some ways sad book but the happy ending makes up for it. I enjoyed it thoroughly. It was hard to put down. Well-written and edited. Hard not to give it five stars.
