Against Time and Place is a highly imaginative and well crafted recreation of a family history which transcends the particular to become a fascinating microcosm of British migration and settlement of Australia. The lives of members of the Booth and Backhouse families unfold against a rich backdrop of places and events, including the coalmines and tenant farms of Yorkshire, the First World War and the Russian Revolution; the gold rushes, pioneering the Wheatbelt and small town life of Western Australia; the Great Depression; the Second World War and its aftermath.
