Meet author Melissa Ashley and discuss her debut novel 'The Birdman's Wife'.

Artist Elizabeth Gould spent her life capturing the sublime beauty of birds the world had never seen before, but her achievements were eclipsed by the fame of her husband, John Gould. Here at last is Eliza’s story. The Birdman’s Wife gives voice to a passionate and adventurous spirit, a woman ahead of her time. From her early days as a naïve young artist who falls in love with a demanding and ambitious genius, Eliza comes into her own as an artist, mother and adventurer who defies convention by embarking on a trailblazing expedition to collect and illustrate Australia’s ‘curious’ birdlife.

'The Birdman’s Wife' paints an indelible portrait of an extraordinary woman overlooked by history – until now.
