The story of Connie Robertson, published by Heinemann, 1990.
â€śSweetheartâ€ť was the middle name of Connie Robertson, the daughter of the Sydney literary figure, A.G. Stephens, and the womenâ€™s editor of The Sydney Morning Herald from 1936 until 1962. In those days, most female journalists were confined to the women writersâ€™ room and not allowed to cover news stories. Connieâ€™s pages, however, held up a mirror to Sydney society over many decades. The book tells her own story but it is also a social history of a city.
