Summary expansion
Miles Franklin wrote My Brilliant Career as a romance to entertain her friends. It depicts the poor, intelligent Sybylla who cannot accustom herself to her family's reduced circumstances. She is given a reprieve and sent to her Grandmother's grand house, where she mingles with the best rural society, including the handsome Harry Beecham. She is faced with the choice of material improvement through marriage, or personal improvement through working for her dreams
