One Leg Over: Having Fun—Mostly—in Peace and War

Robin Dalton

At the age of ninety-five, Robin Dalton looks back on her life, particularly on her love life.

Married at nineteen, disastrously, Robin has a lucky escape—her ‘Society Divorce’ makes the front page of Sydney newspapers, bumping the war to page three. Then there are the American and British servicemen in Sydney—the dancing, the many trysts and a number of not-too-serious engagements—before Robin travels to England ostensibly to marry one of those fiancés.
While most of Europe struggles with post-war austerity, Robin’s days and nights are filled with extravagant dinners,parties with royalty and romantic getaways, until she meets the man who will become, for a brief few years beforehis early death, her second husband.

One Leg Over is a story of love and romance, of fun and glamour, and of loss and great sadness. But above all it’s a celebration of a wonderful life.
