Abandoned by her husband. Eventually returning to her own family. The farm. By now an aging stud. And the falling down house. Not to mention one dud boyfriend with a limited scope for future romance. Which leads to a hurtful repetitive question? Is she destined to be an old maid?
No. No. Of course not.
That is ridiculous. Circumstance pushes Elinor to examine her life in more detail than she might like. Then while recovering from the blow, she inherits the family farm. She has always expected it would be hers, yet the Australian isolation limits any real potential for an engaging future.
The female line in this family are all called Elinor. The dominant character is attached to the mother, then to the daughter. Then her daughter and finally to a brief appearance by the granddaughter. The farm, these females and their generational interaction provide the substance of the narrative.
A visiting group of Spanish horsemen initiate a connection and then romance, which eventually leads to the birth of her daughter. Elinor becomes a single parent, the Spanish sire seems to have forgotten he is married. And the story goes on…
