This is the third book by Stephen Orr that I've read this year and I was again rewarded with an intelligent story, evocative narrative and an engaging familiarity in the characters and settings. This is Orr's newest book and I felt it represented a further evolution in the way he weaves a fictional tale that resembles real and familiar events. This story begins in the pre second world war Barossa Valley, where a mother goes to great lengths to make her only child a world famous musician. This quest takes them to Germany, during which war breaks out and new relationships affect the mother's mission. It's a brilliant character study of what lengths a person will go for ambition and the realisation of a dream. A highly recommended book that I found very hard to put down.
