Letters of Rachel Henning. Published by Thriftbooks. com User, 15 years ago. This book starts a little slow, as we are introduced to a rather stuffy young English lady, told through the letters she writes to family members in the mid-1800's. However, as the story unfolds, I found myself increasingly drawn into Rachel's world, and was reluctant to leave it. We follow her voyage from southern England to Australia, where she slowly adapts to and ultimately embraces life on the frontier, minus the many comforts with which she had been raised.

Social life and customs. Rachel Henning (1826-1914).

“The Letters of Rachel Henning” captures life in Australia during the second half of the nineteenth century with Rachel’s correspondences to family and friends recording her well-travelled experiences in New South Wales and Queensland.

Her long journeys from England and interchanging from Australian city to rural life, and back and forth, certainly enabled her to deeply experience Australia’s unique climates and landscapes.

Family was at the centre of most of Rachel’s letters but in telling them of her life she provided precious glimpses of a much younger colonised Australia.

Her comments regarding Aboriginal Australians confirmed interaction with domestic workers and a small amount of anxiety in coming across “wild” Aborigines still living off the land. Yet Rachel and her brother Biddulph did not seek to hurt Aborigines and both indicated much positivity with regards to coexistence.

Despite the isolation of Australia Rachel kept up to date with international news and made mention of the American Civil War and various wars in Europe.

Rachel’s letters are a rare gift for all Australians and the world as they record the passing of time with her own thoughts and personal experiences.

Nicholas R.W. Henning – Australian Author
I was given the paperback of Rachel Henning’s Diaries in my 20’s and loved every page. I was so happy to rediscover it on kindle. It is such a gem, an unusual book as it tells of life in Australia in the 1800’s from the perspective of a young woman who sails from England to join her brother. She takes to Australia with gusto, following her brother from farm to outback station and back to Sydney. Her letters are always fascinating, as we get to see a particular side of life in the early days. Really such a delight.
