What an interesting adventure. Set in Australia in the 1950‘s it follows three characters as they enter the Redex Trial, a brutal race around the continent and the adventures of a lifetime. Now to read some Peter Carey back stock.
Caught my eye today
I'll read anything Alice Hoffman writes, sometimes they are perfect brilliance, other times quirky and a bit off but interesting and outreaching. I didn't realize this was the prequel to "Practical Magic", gasp. More rollicking good fun. I love her world, her sisters, her magic... I could use some of their black soap!I really hope they make this into a series.
I was disappointed with this book, perhaps I expected too much. Off the three widows: one was a dunderheard- not involved in the resistance, second was a nazi that stole the dead widows paper, third was a sanctimonious aristocrat that thought she was the moral compass of the nation. Not.
