All Day Saturday by Colin MacInnes

Book Description

Lusty sheep farmers and their sensible wives, brainy engineers and over-dressed girls on the make - the whole district loves the parties Helen Bailey throws at Cotamundra station each Saturday. And everyone loves Helen Bailey - everyone, that is, except her husband Walter, who sits alone in the Australian heat, polishing his gun. For Helen, destiny seems to hold only embittered passion, desperate infertility and a lifetime of endless, boring tea parties. But this particular Saturday a young stranger comes to play tennis. And within the space of a single day, the lives and loves of all at the station are altered forever. A poignant portrait of a troubled marriage and a comic and loving evocation of life in the Australian Bush, "All Day Saturday" is a heady, atmospheric drama, where the fates of many are decreed in one day.
