Steve and Blue are two girls who, dressed as men, are taken on as itinerant workers for the farmers of Gippsland. They pack apples and pick peas. But their disguise is partial - and their quest is for love.
For Blue the novel ends in marriage; but not for Steve. For her, desire is never straight forward, and love - for men, for women, for country - leaves her confused, but independent.
