AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Romance on a Victorian country station. Predictable slight narrative of a visit to a country station by a brother of a friend of the station owner's daughter. He is a poor Melbourne clerk; they fall in love; father accepts a proposal from a dark middle-aged man of wealth to redeem his property. Irene cannot bring herself to accept - but a change in the clerk's fortunes brings happiness. Perfunctory. (PB)
