AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Margot Bennett's new novel is a story of love and jealousy set against a background of sheep farming in New Zealand. Andrew Wallace, a determined and dominating older brother, who despises what he calls artificial feminine tricks, takes his admiring little sister, Jenny, to a sheep station in New Zealand and trains her to work like a boy [. . .] When summer comes, she is wholly alive; in love with the beauty of the land; and ready to direct all her intensity to the man she works with, Andrew's hired hand, Sam.'
