Book Description:
This is a self-contained story-arc over eight chapters from the pages of Steele Rudd's book "Back At Our Selection". The Synopsis: After being a shy bachelor for a number of years, Dave has finally got married. To a "Girl from Town" named "Lily White". When she first arrives at "Ruddville", she and Dave's sister Sarah get on wonderfully. But after some months, friction between the two young woman sets in, and Dave and Lily seek to have a separate house of their own on the extensive Rudd property. But Dad, though now a prosperous farmer, started out with his wife and children in a two-room settler's slab-hut, and has a notion ... exacerbated by tightfistedness ... that all young folk should start out their married life like that and work their way up. So he finds, demolishes, carts, and re-erects a forty-year-old abandoned shack for his son and daughter-in-law. They acquiesce to accepting it, and in time even become rather contented there. But soon, Dave's mother-in-law arrives for a visit, and cranky old Dad Rudd finally meets his nemesis. - Summary by Son of the Exiles Cast list: Dad Rudd, Australian farmer - Patriarch of the Rudd clan: Son of the Exiles Mother Rudd, wife of Dad Rudd: TJ Burns Dave Rudd, son of Dad Rudd: Tomas Peter Sarah Rudd, daughter of Dad Rudd: Linda Olsen Fitak Lily White, newly married to Dave: Devorah Allen Lily’s Mother - Dave's mother-in-law: Sonia Joe Rudd, son of Dad Rudd: Nemo Bill Rudd, son of Dad Rudd: Foon Barty Rudd, son of Dad Rudd: Peter Musgrove Jimmy Regan - Neighbour to the Rudds: ToddHW Young Regan - Neighbour to the Rudds: Zoe Trang Willie Wiley - Orphan boy adopted by one of Dad's neighbours: Foon Mary Murphy - Daughter of one of Dad's neighbours: Leanne Yau The Parson: Larry Wilson Mrs Walker: Sandra Schmit Building Contractor: Larry Wilson Narrator: Beth Thomas This project was finished during the March Challenge with the precious help of the following six volunteer editors : Bhavya Campbell Schelp Chuck Williamson JayS linny Maria Kasper
