Abstract:

Tessa Nelson, a spirited and unconventional young woman, is an artist who is at odds with her critics. In a moment of revolt she does a flippant painting and sends it, as a joke, to a gallery show, where, to her horror, it is taken seriously and awarded a prize. She flees from her undeserved fame to her brother's dilapidated farm in the backblocks of New Zealand and immerses herself in farm life, but even here fame finds and haunts her. Then, one day, when Tessa is unbecomingly clad in muddy oilskins, gum boots and with a tea cosy on her head to keep out the rain, she meets a man of kindred spirit, who becomes more important than escaping her fame.
