This is another delightful novel by one of my favourite authors. We rejoin the characters from The Kookaburra Bird and follow their lives once more. This is a sequel but could easily be read on its own - epic and charming at the same time. Authentic and highly detailed it portrays events from many angles. in particular the viewpoint of native Australians is conveyed convincingly. Life affirming but never sentimental a really great read. You really need to read this book!
