If somewhere is 'beyond the black stump' it means it is in the deepest darkest wilds of the Australian outback. This is the sun-baked setting for Nevil Shute's novel of a romance that is tested by the differences between two young people's home lives. Stanton Laird is sent from his small town in America to work in a remote outpost in Western Australia. While out there he befriends the unconventional Regan family and falls in love with the daughter Mollie. However, when Mollie travels to America to visit him the couple realise that their differences in background make their plans for a future together hard to realise.

Review:

"The novel fascinates in its record of the hazards and joys shared by a rich and rewarding company of personalities" ( Scotsman)

"The best novel its author has written for some time...his characters...are carved out with fine bold strokes, and the red dust of his million-acre ranch fairly gets in your throat" ( Daily Telegraph)

"That shattering, unaffected, literary style of his is wholly deceptive...is, in fact, masterly" (H.E. Bates)

"A brilliantly descriptive writer, a master of suspense" ( David Holloway)

Book Description:

A classic adventure from the author of A Town Like Alice and On the Beach.
