Review

This is a special book. The shadows the past casts on one family-and on our society- are brilliantly explored in the voice of a young girl. Sue manages to weave the profound with the everyday language of a teenager. -- Jackie French The humour, drama and tension of this novel, along with the peppering of our country's war history is an amazing read exploring the relationships between four generations of women. I loved each of the character's complexity, their journey to understanding and organic growth. It is all these things that helped me decide to make it one of my texts for English this year. I think that is the best recommendation I can give a book (and that I will be reading her other titles). -- Persnickety Snark
