I read this book having only recently moved to Australia, with the novel offering me an accurate insight on Australia's time during wartime.

This book was really sad when the bombing of Darwin happened, but that was life and it happened and I found this super interesting-the evacuation journeys and what happened and how they got off trains-meeting up with family at the station and what went on in Darwin during the war. Definitely read this book because it is amazing and a touching stor [...]
