Description

Winner of Australian "Indies" Fiction Book of the Year 2013.

#5 in Kirkus Review's Best Historical Fiction Book of 2013 list

One family. Nine momentous days. An unforgettable novel of love and folly and heartbreak.

It is 1939 and Australia is about to go to war. Deep in the working-class Melbourne suburb of Richmond it is business--your own and everyone else's--as usual. And young Kip Westaway, failed scholar and stablehand, is living the most important day of his life.

Ambitious in scope and structure, triumphantly realised, this is a novel about one family and every family. It is about dreams and fights and sacrifices. And finally, of course, it is--as it must be--about love.

Toni Jordan has a BSc in physiology and qualifications in marketing and professional writing. Her debut novel, "Addition," has been published in sixteen countries and won numerous awards. Jordan lives in Melbourne, Australia.
