Gives us insights into what it was like to grow up in Australia in the before and during WWII. The story is mixed with undertones of delightful humour and fading innocence. Historical events are artfully compared to the tensions in the speaker’s own life.
Invites us to reflect on how far we’ve come, and the precious things that may have been that may have been lost on the way.
