Missus takes us behind the lives of Hughie and Mumma, out of the gritty realism of inner city slum life and into the past of the stations,the bush and the country towns. We meet them as they were in the early 1920s, drifter Hugh Darcy, the unwilling hero who sweeps the dreamily innocent Margaret Kilker off her feet. Ruth Park richly creates the turmoil of those early days of their courtship in the dusty outback, filled with beautifully drawn characters that will make you laugh as much as cry. Ruth Park's Australian classics take you from the barren landscapes of the outback to the colourful slums of Sydney with convincing depth, careful detail and great heart.

    " The book started off well but tended to jump around a bit, from person to person, from present to past. Sometimes it was difficult to know if it was in the past or present that things were happening. But all in all it was an interesting read. "

    " Can't go wrong with Ruth Park. If Tim Winton is my king of Australian fiction, she's the queen. "

    " Great characters. Interesting this was written after Harp in the South. Such great characters in that book she had to create another to tell the story of how they came to be! Beautiful writing as always. "
