This is a new edition of David Painting's biography of Amy Dillwyn, first published in 1987. This is a very accessible biography of a remarkable woman, Amy Dillwyn (1845 - 1935); who was born into one of Swansea's most distinguished families, and became a leading industrialist and also novelist. Based largely on her diaries, it traces the life of a woman of exceptional spirit and personality who inherited her father's bankrupt business but learnt to make her way in a man's world.
