After the initial success of " My Brilliant Career " in 1901, the author Miles Franklin left for America five years after the publication and then stayed for over 20 years. During this time she became involved with the Chicago Labour movement. In this book the author uses Miles Franklin's own diaries and letters from that period of time to contender, she was neither a successful as a Labour union agitator for women nor as a writer.
