'Life for the family is tough in Brisbane after Dad's lungs drive him out of the Mt Morgan mines to sit at home drowning his fears in beer. He won't let his daughter work or marry; her job is to help at home. But when the government cuts his pension in 1931, Ada seizes her opportunity.' (One Book Many Brisbanes : Fifth Anthology of Brisbane Stories p. 130)
