There were no reviews when I first purchased this book, but I chose it because I enjoy Australian tales...Grey Town is about the families and relationships in Grey Town, a small country center for a pastoral and agricultural district. A long-lost son returns to Grey Town with some mystery surrounding his time in the USA, and over time begins work as an editor of a new newspaper, on the side of honest town government, the unfortunate and poor, and giving people a chance. His enemies are the ones exploiting the poor, and they accuse him of being against progress and lost in "an absurd humanitarianism." In an effort to discredit him, his enemies send someone off to the USA to find out what he was involved with there. By the end of the story Grey Town changes to a busy industrial town, with manufacturing interests as important as farming interests. Along the way, there are romances, deaths, and births, side trips as people search for quality of life elsewhere. All in all I enjoyed the step back in time to Grey Town and the lives of its citizens.
