Eliott, Lydia S. - Australian Adventure. Lutterworth, 1956, 1st. Jenny Graham couldn't help feeling envious as she watched her brother's plane take him to boarding-school in Tasmania. She longed to go to school: she was cleverer than Frank, she could make good use of the opportunity - but she had to stay at home. It wasn't fair! Nobody ever thought of her! And to make matters worse, her best friend Marilyn announced that she was just off to a fashionable school near Sydney. Jenny soon cheered up, for she knew that her parents could not manage without her capable help on the New South Wales sheep-station. Adventures in plenty were in store for her - 0ne of them concerned with poor spoilt Marilyn, who ran away from school after a week or two - and trials too; but she learns that pain and unhappiness, if they are borne with trust and patience, can bring blessings in their train.
