Sixteen-year old Jane first encounters Peter Greenway at Westbridge Meeting House and is soon entangled in a serious relationship, a first love presumed by those within the tightknit Quaker community to be her last.

But when a chance meeting with a fellow protester against the Vietnam War leads to a complex web of lies, Jane must decide how to live the rest of her life. Forty-four years later, an unexpected reunion sees Jane once more questioning her life choices.

  1. Jo Jordan – Presiding Clerk, Australia Yearly Meeting of The Religious Society of Friends (Quakers)

    Chrysalis is the story about a perceptive girl growing up in a Quaker family in the swinging sixties, who yearns for a full, rich life as an adult. This engaging story brings us face to face with her desires and dilemmas during her life-long search for integrity. A great read.
