Martha Berry is fifty-years old, a spinster, and one of an army of polite and invisible women in 1956 Sydney who go to work each day and get things done without fuss, fanfare or reward. Working at the country's national broadcaster, she's seen highly-praised talent come and go over the years but when she is sent to work secretary on a brand-new radio serial, created to follow in the footsteps of Australia's longest running show, Blue Hills, she finds herself at the mercy of an egotistical and erratic young producer without a clue, a conservative broadcaster frightened by the word 'pregnant' and a motley cast of actors with ideas of their own about their roles in the show. When Martha is forced to step in to rescue the serial from impending cancellation, she ends up secretly ghost-writing scripts, creating mayhem with management, and coming up with storylines that resonate with the serial's growing and loyal audience of women listeners. But she can't keep her secret forever and when she's threatened with exposure, Martha has to decide if she wants to remain in the shadows, or to finally step into the spotlight.… (mere)

For lovers of Historical Fiction; this is a must read.
I loved this book.
Set in the era when Australia is on the verge of introducing television, the radio serial is the main source of entertainment across the country.
Women at that time were paid a pittance compared to their male counterparts and expected to fetch coffee and other mundane tasks for their ‘boss’ , while suffering the insults and ‘harmless fun’ of their male associates. Many of these women were far more talented than their bosses and in a lot of cases were the real force behind the productions while never being acknowledged.
This is the story of one such woman and her refusal to remain forever in the shadows.
An excellent book! ( )
