'For a city girl it was like stepping back in time. Her surgery was a tin shed, the island roads were bush tracks or creek beds, and she was the only doctor on the big rugged island. Self-reliance was essential because the mainland was a long sea-trip away.
The island folk seemed strange at first and life was often tragic and tough. But as she came to know them better she enjoyed their simple like and shared their hopes and problems.
Dr Seager writes with humour and affection about a way of life which, although comparatively recent, has now vanished for ever.'
