Christabel McManus is a strong-willed fourteen-year-old from Sydney's upper classes. Since the death of her mother two years earlier, her father - the Government Inspector of Health for New South Wales - has thrown himself increasingly into his work, leaving Christabel feeling lonely and resentful.
This is an exciting adventure with historical turn-of-the-century Australia as the setting. The characters are interesting and believable and the language accessible for early teens.
