Filled with larger-than-life strong, wilful and unconventional women, The Ballad of Siddy Church tells of the lasting effect this larrikin mob has on the life of Eadie Wilt. At the centre of the mayhem is Siddy Church.
"My grandmother was a difficult woman, you could not get around it. She was born on three different occasions in three different locations and she said her name was Siddy Church. Late at night she would sit like a giant curious toad, her heavy-lidded eyes turning with her head, her pupils like magic bullets about the room. Her past was too big and diverse for her to govern, people talked about her shady past. She had relinquished her right to her own story."
