“In Billabong’s Daughter, Norah has just visited Tommy.  She rescues Mrs Reilly, an Irish immigrant mother, and her daughter, Mary-Kate, from their runaway horse and sulky.  At ‘Billabong’, her father relives old memories of the wilder side of his youth.  Left alone at home, an intruder frightens Tommy.  The man escapes when Jim comes on the scene.  The girls visit the Reillys, finding Mrs Reilly desperately ill so both families help out where they can.  Mary-Kate becomes a willing pupil at ‘Billabong’, learning everything from cooking and cleaning to dispatching snakes.”
