From man to man; or Perhaps only by Olive Schreiner( Book )
45 editions published between 1926 and 2015 in English and held by 660 libraries worldwide
"The story is about two white women, Rebekah and Bertie, sisters born into the racist and sexist society of mid-nineteenth South Africa. One sister remains in the Cape, marries and has children, the other becomes a kept woman and then a prostitute in London's East End. But, the novel asks, how far are marriage and prostitution really apart in a world where women are valued mainly for their bodies? From exploring white women's confinement to domesticity, the novel expands its gaze to include black women and girls, whose presence gradually informs Rebekah's struggle to re-create herself and educate her children (including her black foster-child) so that they may pursue a more humane and fulfilled destiny than was open to her generation. The new edition of From Man to Man, edited by Dorothy Driver, corrects the editorial and proofreading errors that marred previous editions. It also provides another ending, in Schreiner's own words, as told in a letter to a friend."--Back cover

This early work by Olive Schreiner was originally published in 1929 and is now being republished with a brand new introductory biography. 'Undine' is a semi-autobiographical novel about life in colonial South Africa. Olive Emilie Albertina Schreiner was born on 24th March 1855 at the Wesleyan Missionary Society station at Wittebergen in the Eastern Cape, near Herschel in South Africa. In 1880, Olive set sail for the United Kingdom with the goal of taking a position as a trainee nurse at the Royal Infirmary in Edinburgh in Scotland. Unfortunately ill-health prevented her from studying and she was forced to concede that writing would and could be her only work in life. In 1883, she produced her first published work The Story of an African Farm which she penned under the pseudonym Ralph Iron
