For Love Alone/Stead, Christi/Paper/1875892710/S022-C
Against a background of two cities - Sydney, thick with genteel sweat; and London, grim, dark and depressed - For Love Alone tells the story of Teresa Hawkins, high minded, passionate and independent, who knows only one commandment: Thou Shalt Love.
Obsessed by love and a sense of her own destiny, Teresa turns her back on Sydney and its suburban horizons, and sets off on her 'grand, perilous journey'. Following the self-seeking and contemptuous Jonathon Crow, whom Stead gives to us here in an unforgettable portrait of misogyny, Teresa arrives in London to a world in which she does indeed seem fated to belong. There she meets James Quick and discovers another form of love, and her own power as a woman.
