Everyman's Rules for Scientific Living
IT IS 1934, AND aboard the ‘Better Farming Train’, an earthy romance develops between an idealistic scientist and a talented young seamstress.

The unlikely couple settle in the impoverished Mallee with the ambition of proving that science can transform the land. But with failing crops and another world war looming, they are forced to confront each other and the fragile earth around them.

Erotic, wise and funny, this exquisite novel evokes the Australian landscape in all its stark beauty and vividly captures the hope and disappointment of an era.
