Freda Marnie Nicholls lives and works on her husband's family farm in Gundagai in southern New South Wales. She was a rural journalist for fourteen years during which time she had the pleasure of interviewing many interesting people. She believes that everyone has a story.
This is one of those yarns from Australian history that makes you
wonder why a film hasn't been made about it... it is a lively
retelling of the tale that should have producers knocking on
Nicholls's door soon. * Daily Telegraph (Sydney) *
It's an entertaining story with attention to detail - explained in the author's notes at the end of the book as 'factional history', real and imagined people and events woven together. It seems an enterprise worthy of Mrs Livesey herself. * Herald Sun *
