Billie and Jennifers portrayal in The Riders by Tim Winton is mostly through other characters in the novel.
These thoughts show how he would go out of his way to please his wife. He has done a series of menial, back breaking jobs to support his wifeâs lifestyle of painting and writing. Scully also does a similar thing for his daughter Billie. Following the birth of Billie, Scully took time off from work and looked after his daughter (Winton, 1995: p 39). Which expresses how committed he was for his daughter Billie. During the time he he took of work, Scully developed a very good relationship with his daughter. This resulted in him spending more time with his daughter than his wife he taught Billie how to swim, ride a bike and how to read and write(P.83).
