Jenny Gorgeous read over the summer for our Book Club. It had all the right elements of history, romance and family relationships. A good dash of intrigue set in the beautiful region of the south coast of NSW. The landscape became strangely familiar, realising early on that I had visited that area a few years ago and many of the key landmarks were places I explored and enjoyed. Was great to be able to picture the setting so really liked this element of it. Di Morrissey always gives you great context and I really appreciated her trip back to an earlier Australia where the story starts with the hopeful and relatively courageous and carefree Giuseppe who finds himself on a ship heading to Australia instead of America. He worked hard and made himself a very successful business person, like many who came with nothing they made the very most of things and worked hard to make their own mark. Its a story of family ties, secrets and tradition. There are tragic events but also lots of lovely connective moments. Really liked it, great read.
