Description

It's dangerous and deadly work, less so for her father and brother, but very dangerous and deadly for those that work under them.

However, Eliza does not believe Charlie is dead, and goes to visit the obnoxious and racist Sergeant Archibald Parker at the gaol, he has arrested the Aboriginal Billy Balarri, who could not have had anything to do with her missing father. Lawhon weaves all this into a richly satisfying drama that moves suspensefully between childbed, courtroom, and the banks of the Kennebec River. Pook introduced various interesting characters, such as Min, a mixed-race girl of an Asian father who was forced into prostitution to survive.Her father is a pearl master, her brother works by his side, and Eliza is alone when they go on their ten week pearling expeditions.

Eliza’s devotion to her family, despite the many flaws of Charles and Thomas, explains why she refuses to give up. Those who know him know he has never told a lie in his life—“Never be the one to tell lies, Nico,” his grandfather teaches him. The pearl diving attracted Japanese and other Asians, although the power of the area was exclusively European. Everyone believes he’s dead, except for Lizzie whose plucky spirit makes her undeterred in the face of negativity. Events extend for decades beyond World War II, until everyone’s lives finally collide in dramatic fashion.Beautifully written, unflinching and brimming with adventure' - Jennifer Saint, author of Ariadne and Elektra'Immersive storytelling, a rollicking mystery and a take-no-prisoners heroine' - Stylist1896, Bannin Bay, Australia.
