Late 1940s Sydney, Australia, saw an influx of immigration as refugees ("reffos") escaping war-torn Europe strove to rebuild their ravaged lives in a new land, desperately trying to mix with the culture of those around them. Deidre Rubenstein articulates an amazing range of accents to convey this melting-pot experience while cleverly portraying characters ranging from children to the elderly, from timid victims to those engulfed in anger. Prejudice permeates the underlying mystery, leading to tragedy for some and love and salvation for others. An engrossing novel with strong character development and a vivid setting.
