My Father's Moon based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
My Father's Moon opens with young WWII nurse Vera Wright pregnant to a dead man and facing an uncertain future. The novel unfolds into a poignant retelling of just how Vera came to be in this predicament. It touches on many interesting themes, including friendship, betrayal and the wretched drudgery of life during wartime. This is the first book in Elizabeth Jolley's semi-autobiographical trilogy. It is somewhat disjointed, to the point where I sometimes wondered if I had accidentally skipped over some pages. For this reason I would not recommend it as a starting point for readers new to Jolley's wonderful body of work.
