May – Belinda Murrell – The Sequin Star

One of my faves for this month. See my review here.

I really enjoyed this time slip novel. The main character, Claire goes back in time to 1932. As a history teacher who grew up in Sydney, the story resonates with me. The opening of the harbour bridge, the locations around Sydney and the “making do” of many during the Great Depression are things I have taught students or talked about with older people. I would have liked to have had this book as another way in to a sometimes “dry” topic. More for Year 6-8 rather than older year levels but very much worth a read.
