Annotation

It is 1934 and the government Better Farming Train slides through the wheat fields and small towns of Australia. It leads to a meeting between Robert and Jean, who, in an atmosphere of heady scientific idealism, marry and settle in the impoverished Mallee with the ambition of proving that science can transform the land.

Publisher Description

It is 1934, the Great War is long over and the next is yet to come. It is a brief time of optimism and advancement. Erotically charged, and shot through with humour and a quiet wisdom, this haunting first novel evokes the Australian landscape in all its stark beauty and vividly captures the hope and disappointment of an era.
