The situation arises when the owner's weak-willed son, left to temporarily manage the station, is manipulated by his villainous overseer. A stranger to the district helps foil the plot, however, and also eventually proves to be the rightful owner of the woman's rival property. The narrative includes a bush fire incident, which occurs when the woman and the stranger attempt to drove a large herd of sheep.

From a contemporary review:

'The story opens, as so many Australian stories do, in England, where Charlie Roberts is falsely accused of defalcations to the amount of £300. His only punishment is dismissal. He is in love with the manager's daughter, Maud, and they part from one another with much feeling, though the representation of emotion is not among the writer's strong points. He goes to Sydney and finds that Australia is not so empty as she seems, and that there are more than enough applicants for every vacancy. At last he secures a place as roustabout at 10s. a week–which is his first step towards fortune and Maud. "Caloola"' is the name of the station, and one of the very first things Charlie does is to fall in love with the daughter of the station owner, Hilda Dwyer.

'In the meantime Maud is courted in England by Sir Rupert Baron, who has her father in his grasp. As a matter of fact, it was Maud's father who was responsible for the missing £300. For what particular reason Maud was introduced at ail is not clear, for, after hating Sir Rupert for a few pages, she finds she loves him after all and wonders what she shall wear for the wedding–about as weak an arrangement as one can imagine.

'Meanwhile things have been happening in Australia. Charlie has a fight with the overseer, Ferris, and, of course, according to immemorial precedent, beats him badly. Hilda is overtaken by a bush fire and Charlie brings off a picturesque rescue. She is captured by blacks and the invincible Charlie saves her again. Mr. and Mrs. Dwyer have little else to do than act as a chorus to applaud Charlie, who comfortably elects to forget Maud, who has forgotten him. He marries Hilda and the story ends.'

Bookstall Company , 1910 Z27844 1910 single work novel science fiction adventure Set on a station near the fictitious rural town of Waratah Valley, Love and the Aeroplane is set in a future in which high speed mono-railways (which can travel at 150 miles per hour), biplanes and electrical machinery have effectively ended the need for horses and other work animals. The horse, for example, has been left to survive in the wilderness areas of Australia, but in doing so has become a pest. This has led to the Government declaring them a pest and allowing them to be hunted for money. This forms the foundation for much story's dramatic organisation. The issue which most directly influences the novel's narrative trajectory, however, involves Alice Hardy, whose jealousy leads her into a compromising situation with the region's mail carrier. This sets in motion a series of unanticipated incidents that involve her husband, Tom, and several other characters.

A number of reviewers have criticised the book for being overly melodramatic and pandering to 'popular tastes.' While Graham Stone refers to it, somewhat kindly, as 'a sentimental novel set in an indefinite future Australia with some material progress' (p. 117), the Evening Post critic is less complimentary, writing:

Likely to appeal only to those who are easily catered for, [a] husband and wife, and a couple of villains, together with one or two minor characters, fill up the stage, and with plots, and counterplots, and misunderstandings, the tale is dragged out to the bitter end; the villains are properly disposed of to the satisfaction of the most sensational melodrama-loving reader, and the hero and heroine live, we hope, very happily ever after (9 July 1910, p.13).

The opinion of the Western Mail literary critic is, however, more complimentary: 'Without having claim to be regarded as a great novel, [Love and the Aeroplane] has an all-round attractiveness, certain to secure for it a wide range of popularity and is a highly creditable addition to Australian fiction' (9 July 1910, p.50).'

'It is the story of strange doings in the hill country of Victoria. Hugh Wharton, at his father's bidding, sets out on the latter's death, to seek his relatives in Australia, in order to share with them his fortune, and finds them far from what he had pictured them. Between the time he rides up into the mountains on his quest, after receiving certain mysterious and disconcerting hints, until he rides down again with the girl he has won, he passes through some sensational experiences, which follow quickly upon the heels of each other, and the reader will not care to lay down the book until he has finished it.'
