"This lyrical and discerning memoir tells of a country that was rich in beauty and contradictions: aboriginal gunyahs and afternoon tea; monsoons and Victrola dances; bush missionaries and Anglican girl's schools . vivid, entertaining and wonderfully evocative, it is both an intense and magical slice of autobiography and a subtle insight into her exuberant homeland."
