First published in 1901, this Australian classic recounts the live of 16-year-old Sybylla Melvyn.

Trapped on her parents' outback farm, she simultaneously loves bush life and hates the physical burdens it imposes.

For Sybylla longs for a more refined, aesthetic lifestyle - to read, to think, to sing - but most of all to do great things.Suddenly her life is transformed.

Whisked away to live on her grandmother's gracious property, she falls under the eye of the rich and handsome Harry Beecham and soon she finds herself choosing between everything a conventional life offers and her own plans for a 'brilliant career'.
