On her return to her family, her husband Bill drops a bombshell in her lap. “How would you like to migrate to Australia?”Ruth adored living in the States. She wouldn’t have minded moving to California: away from the extreme cold of the Midwest. After all, Bill was not a man for change: not that big of a change! The children loved the idea. Once their application papers to migrate were signed and the children no longer had to keep their secret, Ruth threw her body and soul into their new exciting adventure.Their ship, the ‘Orcades’ on her farewell voyage arrived in Sydney in the wake of the ‘Oriana’ to the most spectacular welcome by the people of Sydney. The Oriana was on her maiden voyage on New Years Eve 1960.Settling in Melbourne in a two-bedroom house overrun with rats and mosquitoes, they found pioneering with a copper, ice chest and an outdoor toilet was going to take some getting used to.Ruth went from housewife to ‘Centre Stage’ in the field of advertising after she left her first job at the Mutual Store.(But then: that’s another book!)
