'This is a rare view of a place that has changed and a time that will never be repeated - Broome in the 1920s and '30s - told by Rosemary Hemphill, whose father owned one of the largest fleets of pearling luggers in Western Australia and whose mother longed for the genteel life she left behind in England. now in her early eighties, Rosemary writes about life in the arid frontier town that was filled with characters, stories and brilliant colours, and the contrasts of her later childhood in green England.'
