Comment

This is a debut novel and quite unique. I love to delve into the pages of a first time author as I navigate the unpredictable pathway the new author leads me on. Set in and around 1969 – a remote coastal town on the west coast of Australia. So much in society is soon to change and a large dish has appeared on the edge of town in preparation for the landing on the moon. Preparations are in place to relay messages between Apollo 11 and Houston Texas. To service the dish, radar technician Evan Johnson brings his stylish wife Linda and their daughter Jo to reside in Clam St, Port Badminton. It’s about small town life, quirky characters, it’s nostalgic and reflective of a bygone era....it just happens that most of the narration is through the eyes of a galah named Lucky!. After an unlucky start to life, fate steps in and new found wonders await. More literary in style, it’s not big on action or gripping plot but rich in detail and depths of emotion. It’s funny, sad, thoughtful and I have not read a book quite like it! Though if you read When God Was A Rabbit by Sarah Winman then you will love this new tale.
