I liked the story of the three girls & their tenacity, but I didn‘t like the way it was narrated. I wish I had known this glossary was at the back. #readharderchallenge
What an amazing story of courage and determination. Pilkington gives tells of the events surrounding the white invasion of the region, and the impact on the local people, culminating in the removal of their children. Molly, Gracie and Daisy have no intention of staying in the terrible conditions, and escape, setting off on a harrowing journey on foot back to their families.
Summer colds are the worst, and I'm hunkered down with lots of tea tree oil and tissues. I'm hoping it doesn't impact my planned weekend reading too much. This one is first cab off the rank.
I picked this up as part of my #IndigenousPeoples Month #TBR and while the story itself is amazing, the writing is very lackluster. I was really disappointed that the author didn't write more about their time in the bush, even more disappointed that she seemed to glaze over the most important parts and then rushed through the ending.
Picked this up when Doris recently passed. A brilliant book about subverting fences in the age of border build-up. It was both a lesson in courage and a reminder of how powerful it is to remember stories as a living force and to retell them again and again.
