A fourth-generation Australian and nurse, de Grys conveys her quotidian and professional experiences in a remote La Grange, on the Indian Ocean in Western Australia. The dust jacket illustration by Douglas Maxted showing happy natives is stylistically charming, albeit culturally insensitive. Dust jacket is now housed in a removable, clear archival sleeve.
