The novel begins:

'BUNDARRA is a small township ''out West/' as they say in Australia.

Works about this Work

'By Mrs Campbell Praed': Author and Text Chris Tiffin , 1998 single work criticism biography
— Appears in: Bibliographical Society of Australia and New Zealand Bulletin , Second Quarter vol. 22 no. 2 1998; (p. 67-80)
Rosa Praed's Colonial Heroines Michael Sharkey , 1981 single work criticism
— Appears in: Australian Literary Studies , May vol. 10 no. 1 1981; (p. 48-56) Who Is She? 1983; (p. 26-36)
Sharkey argues that romance enabled Praed to present the colonial experience from a metropolitan point of view and intelligibly relate the circumstances of women in fronteir society to a European audience. This is achieved by employing a love-theory that declares, in Platonic terms, that for each person there is one who is their perfect match.
