When her father, the irascible but loveable Mac, buys a property in Queensland's Gulf Country, it seems like she might have found one.But not everything goes smoothly. In their struggle to make a go of things, the McGinnis family encounters fire, flood, a three-metre python, and other, human obstacles. Sian, the eldest son, is at loggerheads with his father, while Mac soon develops itchy feet. And Kerry and her sister Judith discover that life in a man's country is far from easy. At a time when young women are expected to settle down and have a family, Kerry must make some difficult decisions about love, marriage and her passionate desire to write.Full of exuberance, humour and courage, this sequel to Kerry McGinnis's highly successful Pieces of Blue is an uplifting account of life in a land of incredible beauty and harsh demands.
