As an Australian you are making me feel embarrassed. I have seen you mention a number of Australian books that I was not even aware of, this being the latest. I think I need to seek out some of these.

Oh this does sound like a great historical read. I have not read many books set in Australia and much less during this timeframe so this would be a great introduction.

It's amazing what you can find when you start digging around, which is what I was doing in the summer when I knew I wanted to read Australian lit. And now I seem to just happen across books, it's kind of funny how that happens. Sometimes it is when you are not looking specifically for a type of book that they seem to fall into your lap. I really enjoyed this one--it was a nice mixture of plot and characterization and while not heavy handed an interesting glimpse into Aboriginal culture, too.

I really liked this one and always like WWII novels--like you I think I have not come across many set in Australia, so this was a treat. I will be on the look out for more for certain.

I'm hoping to get to some of the Aussie books on my shelves and on my TBR next year. Whenever I focus on their literature, I only want to read more of it. This sounds like a satisfying story indeed.

I accumulated quite a few books when I was reading Aussie lit this summer. I should count how many books I read, though I think a few might have been by British writers who moved there....so do I count them as Brits or Australians?? Nevil Shute was actually born in England, when I always thought he was Australian by birth....now that is just going to mess up my stats! ;)
