"Off the Southern Coast of Australia are islands where people lived until the coming of air transport and the radio telephone, in an isolation similar to that of the Scottish Hebrides.  The scenes of this absorbing novel are laid on one such island, already made familiar to readers of Lindsay's previous book, Sweeps the Wide Earth.
Janie McLachlan is the deeply moving story of one of the settler's daughters.  it describes how a woman grows up with few human contacts outside her family, and tells of her hard struggle to make a living there, until a modern discovery in agricultural science makes her wealthy."
