Overview

Weaving together the enchanting stories of Jingera and its townsfolk, this is a heartwarming sequel to the acclaimed Stillwater Creek. It is the spring of 1961, and the sleepy little town of Jingera is at its most perfect with its clear blue skies, pounding surf, and breathtaking lagoon. Yet all is not so perfect behind closed doors. George Cadwallader—butcher by day and stargazer by night—is loved by everyone, except his wife. He only wants the best for his family—yet it's all falling apart. Philip Chapman is a sensitive young boy, a musical prodigy, and a target for bullies. But with his wealthy parents indifferent to his cries for help, his entire future is at risk. Then there's Ilona Vincent and her daughter, Zidra, former refugees, now fully fledged “Jingeroids.” When a voice from the past reaches out to them, they're soon in a race against time to reunite a family that has been cruelly torn apart.

    I loved The Indigo Sky. Two young people—one dispossessed and impoverished, the other wealthy and privileged—are both on a journey they can't control in this moving novel about family, friendship, and personal freedom.
    This is the second novel in the Jingera Trilogy (set in the village of Jingera, on the south coast of NSW in Australia), and again it has a wonderful collection of characters. The characters, plotting and descriptive writing are again brilliant, and the story has a deeply satisfying conclusion.
