AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Fourteen year old Josh Plowman goes to country Victoria to visit his father's Aunt Clara, the matriarch of the Plowman family. Aunt Clara lives a life very much suited to the past and Josh regards her house as a museum. Aunt Clara is keen for Josh to make friends with the local children but Josh meets with a hostile reception. There are undercurrents at work which Josh cannot ever understand. (Source: Book)
