How far can a woman of vision go? Cold Light introduces Edith Campbell Berry, fresh from International acclaim at the League of Nations, handsome British diplomatic husband in tow. Look out 1950’s Canberra, she’s on her way to the top. Or is she? The League was, after all a failure, and hubby dear is a secret cross dresser and her long lost brother is a Communist agitator watched by a fledgling ASIO. Maybe those dreams of renewed diplomatic honour might take longer than she thinks to materialize. A lot longer.
And so to be ‘acceptable’ she consults the Book of Crossroads, bungles her inner life, remarries badly, and compromises her career options. Delicious drama, involving life choices, and a celebration of the beauty of a life lived with passion and determination.
