I really liked this short novel about a trio of women who live on 5 acres in Australia's Blue Mountains. They are 7 miles from the small town that is dominated by the men of their extended family. The widow and her daughter share their small holding with the spinster sister. They are so poor that they only wear brown because it doesn't show the dirt.
