AbstractHistoryArchive Description

A bitter rivalry breaks out when a female servant and her station hand husband take out a selection on their employer's cattle station. The woman, Mrs Minto, concocts a terrible story against Martia, the cattle station owner's daughter, who has married against her parents' wishes and moved out of the district, and her sister Athenia. The sisters are acquitted in the subsequent trial, but Brennan is led to ponder the inadequacies of some medical witnesses and the sometimes unjustified faith placed in their testimony.
