For a few paragraphs we fear tragedy may lie ahead, and we hold our breath for in a short time we have come to know and like the characters. But this is a rite of passage story about an eight-year old who is propelled to learn to swim. Lucky is a likeable lad with home-cropped straw-coloured hair and freckles; we feel the relief as 'the balm of the river doused the sunburn sting on his legs and back.'
Debbie Terranova draws on all the senses to evoke her scenes; the sounds vary from slap of the tide to the treadle sewing machine's clatter, the click-clack of scissors; the World War 1 songs. There are the aromas; of rotting mangoes, of tobacco, hops and sweat; 'herbal breath' of the mangroves. And the tactile; the sticky heat, the moss-green slime, the brackish water.
These, and the characters, make for an enjoyable read.
