Still revered across Australia, Henry Lawson is one of the nation's favourite writers and poets. His contemporary, Mary Gilmore, was a literary icon and radical socialist. Both were heroes of literature that had enormous influence over each other.
At the end of the 19th century, Mary Gilmore was introduced to the young Henry Lawson. As their friendship developed, Mary found herself caught in the midst of an intense relationship between Henry and his formidable mother. What followed was the beginning of a love affair, soon thwarted by a devastating deception.
Historically significant and beautifully touching, All My Love reveals the little-known but heartbreaking love story of two Australian literary icons.
