Despite big overseas sales, it was banned in New Zealand and later Australia for being disgusting, indecent, and communistic - in other words, for promoting revolutionary ideas about the role of women and for a bold portrayal of the brutality of farm life. On one level the novel is a fast-paced account of how passion and jealousy destroy the lives of a rich and cultured farming family; on another, it is a fierce polemic for the freedom of women, which in its frankness was years ahead of its time.
