Summary

Maisie Hodgetts was brought up in Scotland and moved permanently to Australia with her husband and three children in 1973. They settles on a small farm in Denmark, Western Australia. Sadly, Maisie's husband died in a drowning accident three years later, before the farm was fully established. Maisie decided to stay in Australia and make a go of the farm on her own.
