What an epic novel! Incredible characters, I got to know not only Evie and Paddy but Charlie, Rusty, Russ and Rod. Watching people grow from children to 60 year old, for me it was a study in humanity. Major Australian events and people are here, but viewed through the characters. Just like they are in real life. The idea of building and creating as well as love and truth. It’s a hard book to review, there was so much happening, which makes for very very good reading.
