The Australian Woman's Mirror describes this novel as follows:

'A New Guinea planter sends a cheque to Sydney for the girl he loves to come north and marry him. A girl arrives, but she is not the one he sent for and, furthermore, she has fallen in love with another man on the way, yet she says she will marry the man who sent the cheque.

There you have the kernel of a romance that is worked out in an absorbingly interesting fashion in "Tide-Rips".

The author, Alys Brown, is well known as a writer of striking New Guinea stories, and here she has done excellent work in a full-length novel.'
