Rosemary Wisewould’s new fiction pays tribute to the women who struggled and persevered with returned soldiers

Xlibris, the self-publishing services provider, announced today the release of Virgin Impressions. Authored by Rosemary Wisewould, this book of fiction follows a woman who stepped out of her comfort zone to start a new life with her husband.

As a young and genteel English woman, Stacy is a wife with a past of perceived abandonment. She goes back to a lifestyle of hardship, isolation and limited facilities, working beside her young husband to clear and carve out a home and farm from a virgin block of bush. In this remote environment, with the loving support of her husband, companionship of people from a past era, and her close friend, she endures climatic extremes and frightening wildlife.

Can she build a new, loved Stacy in the environment of her new home and a town brimming with history?

Although fiction, Virgin Impressions is a tribute to the brave women who left behind comfortable homes to support their returned soldiers. Isolated but happy, they worked together with their husbands on soldier settlement farms in their quest to build something to call their own.

This book will be featured in the 2011 New York Library Association Book Exhibit in Saratoga Springs, NY, on November 2 to 5, 2011. For more information on this book, interested parties may log on to

About the Author
Rosemary Wisewould (Gamble) was born and raised in Collie, a small coal mining town in the south west of Western Australia.

After marrying and relocating to Fitzgerald, a grain and sheep farming community on Western Australia’s southern coast, she became very active in the developing of the family farm.

Rosemary studied and enjoyed, English Literature in high school and for many years she dabbled in writing short stories and poetry but began writing seriously at a later age.

Fitzgerald is close to the town of Jerramungup, a community which has a history connected with Australia’s returned servicemen and is, with the history of the clearing of the area, one of the inspirations for this novel.
