    Title: Between Heaven & Earth
    Author: IRWIN SALLY

    Freda Du Faur's story is not only about her conquest of Mount Cook in 1910 and her daringly brilliant later climbs in the Southern Alps but it also recreates the world of a woman born in the 19th Century who aspired to live as if she had the choices available today. It takes the reader into the realms of Federation Sydney, early mountaineering in New Zealand, suffragist London then, during the later backlash against independent women, into the frightening domain of the first lethal 'deep sleep therapies'. Freda's life was one of great promise, of ambition thwarted, lost love and a pride that refused to compromise.
