Description

Sybella "There is no plot in this story, because there has been none in my life or in any other life which has come under my notice. I am one of a class, the individuals of which have no time for plots in their life, but have all they can do to get their work done without indulging in such a luxury". Like the author Miles Franklin, Sybella grows up in the bush, and as her family's fortunes decline, so her feelings rise that life should hold more for her than the relentless hard physical work farming marginal land in times of drought.

    Oh this story is just so wonderful and yet I feel a little heavy in the heart that I have finished reading it. It is a 113 years old piece of Australian History and yet it is still to this day, vivid, intense and full of the vigour and turmoil which we are transported and exposed to by Sybylla, our story writer. She shows that behind every man that planted a field, raised sheep or cattle, there were stronger women keeping it all together raising children, tending to chores and farming just as the men folk. Loved it!
