"The time is just before World War I, the place a small town in the Blue Mountains near Sydney, Australia. Who was John Smith, and why was he living alone in the bush? These were the questions asked by the outraged members of the Hurlingford clan when he came and stole their valley out from under their self-important noses. But as much as his arrival seemed to threaten them, it came to matter most to the youngest of the three ladies who lived in the house called Missalonghi. Missy Wright's existence stretched drearily in front of her, the future holding no more promise than the past. Like her mother and maiden aunt, Missy was another of the Hurlingford clan's manless women - bullied, pitied, exploited, patronized, utterly unimportant in their scheme of things. No sensible mentor would have dreamed of advising Missy to consult a wildly romantic novel for the answer to her plight. But luckily Missy's mentor was a librarian with a taste for purple prose and a scandalous past, who understood that beneath Missy's drab exterior there beat the heart of an enchanting and adventurous woman."; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall
