About the Book

It is 1911 when Bill and Isobel Elgin scramble down from the Kalgoorlie Express with their family of six in tow to begin a new life in the wheatlands of Western Australia. As they head to their farm in Bunburra to fulfill their dream of a better future, Isobel and her daughters lament over the dry, dusty, vermin-infested landscape that is vastly different from their former home in England. Still, they are determined to support the men in their family, no matter the personal sacrifices. But as they face one complex challenge after another, the entire Elgin family soon realizes that nothing in life is certain, especially when living in a land filled with brown snakes, questionable neighbors, and seemingly insurmountable obstacles that even shock the local clergy. In this historical novel set from 1911 to the outbreak of the Second World War, an English family immigrates to a farm in Western Australia where they must endure many trials and tribulations.
