This story I am pretty sure was set in Australia (possibly New Zealand)and starts with a young women arriving by train with her younger brother in a small town. I think their parents have passed away and they are going to live in a house that has been left to them.
They are met at the station in the outback (?) by a man who immedately has to take the young boy to the bathroom where he is promptly sick through eating too many sweets on the long train journey. (Amazing what detail you remember!). They are then taken by the man to the house where they are to live in the middle of no where but near to his homestead. On arrival they discover the house has been left in a terrible state and a spider or some other creature has taken up residency in one of the rooms. The man has already left and is unable to help them.
The women starts to learn to drive and has a bad accident while out in the middle of no where and the man rescues her and takes her back to his house to recover. It is while staying with him that their relationship develops although there is another women on the scene who has hers eyes set on him.
Not much to go on I know as it was about thirty years ago that this was read.
Also having just read this back to my self it must sound a very strange story but there was obviously something about it to make it stick in my mind! Hope someone can help?
