'Alice Morton, wife of a wealthy Sydney bookmaker, took time off from her "full rich life" of card parties, committees, fashion parades and race meetings to send a food parcel to England. Her conscience salved, she immediately forgot the action. But it was recalled twelve months later when Valerie Hickman, a young woman from London called on Mrs. Morton to thank her for the gift.
'Bill Morton, young and impetuous, was immediately attracted to Valerie. She became introduced to the Morton set–wealthy, irresponsible, selfish. Valerie also met Greg Broderick, a disabled war hero, in whom she confided her fear that the moral decay of the Australian people had placed this country in grave danger.'
