"Governor Stirling, with his colonists near starvation, has a grimly difficult task in the first years of settlement in Western Australia.  The faint-hearted have returned to England; those who remain continue the struggle for survival in this stubborn unknown land - among them the high-born adventurer Simon Lee Challinor and his wife Penelope, lovely daughter of the inn-keeper Martha Gubby.  The inimitable Martha has remained too, and a colourful assortment of individual characters both humorous and grave.  For there is abundant humour in this tale of courage and comradeship, of jealously and passionate love; and the tragedy of rape and murder and privation is offset by the gaiety and charm with which the author handles domestic comedy."
