AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Jenny Stormonth returns from her Melbourne boarding school to keep house for her widowed doctor father in the little country township he serves. She quickly meets the artistic and cultivated Brandon Arthur of Narramboluc station and his dashing visitor Captain Bracebridge, both of whom are attracted to her. A cricket match at their township, Euramba, a visit to Narramboluc, and a horse-breaking exhibition allow Bracebridge to win Jenny's heart - but he has to wait two years before they can marry. Slowly his letters dwindle until he does not reply to Jenny's last letter, and she on a picnic is lost and saved by Brandon at the cost of his own health ... Unsentimental romantic theme developed amid domestic and bush scenes. (PB)
