Written in the great depression, this is a cheerful and amusing book about a struggling Gippsland family who are suddenly left a fortune.
They move to Melbourne and have a wild spending spree, but after two years they decide that money is not everything, and they buy a large estate in the country.
This book was successfully adapted by the South Australian Film Corporation as a television mini-series in 1991, details of which can be seen here.
