The Singing Line by Alice Thomson

A really enjoyable account of the life of Alice & Charles Todd, the author's great great grandmother. From Cambridgeshire, once Alice had married Charles they embark on their new life together in Australia. Alice to raise their family in a very harsh, yet beautiful country whilst Charles was amongst others to string the telegraph across Australia.

The author and her husband not only travel in the footsteps of Charles (and Alice) across what is harsh terrain, but uses some genealogical sources, family information and historical sources to rebuild their fascinating lives.
