AbstractHistoryArchive Description

It is 1953 in a small country town in Australia, a time of postwar prosperity and hope. The Holtens are wealthy austere graziers who lived on the land for generations. The McBrides are a large and loving shearer's family who are new arrivals to the district. When the McBrides' eldest daughter falls in love with the Holtens' only son and heir, the barriers to their love seem overwhelming. But in the end, their love triumphs even over tragedy ... and hope and joy are their enduring legacy - back cover.

Notes

  • Dedication: Dedicated to families everywhere ... who are linked by those members present, those past who are still with us across the circle of time, and those yet to come ... in the hope that respect and affection for our own family might forge us all into one international family. And for Poppy who always said, 'The last mile home is always the longest ... but isn't it good to get there!'
  • Other formats: Also sound recording.
