Of course it is a bit contrived that the girl doing the research turns out to be the heir, but even that matches the historic setting- they liked their stories that way in earlier times. (Think Dickens)
A thoroughly enjoyable read!

I half jokingly say I would have been burned (or hanged - depending on where I lived) as a witch in a previous time because of my strange toes and the fact that I am also left handed, as are the girls in this story.
I really enjoyed the whole tale and have always found Duckbilled Platypuses to be fascinating. I didn’t know the males had spurs until this story.
I loved the connection between the two ladies - a century apart. All the characters were well written and interesting. The ending was very satisfying.
It would make a great film, in my opinion.
I loved it.
Mallengong by the aborigines. The story also refers to Sir Joseph Banks and is based in the 1820's. The National Geographics in London would not accept that an animal who was classed as a mammal, but whose young were born by an egg but who then suckled its young. 100 years later Tamsin a librarian is handed a large sketch book about the Platypus and so begins her search to find out who did the drawings. A really good read, well written and worth purchasing.
I loved the clever and careful weaving of the unveiling of details of two smart women in times when women had their place.
It is a pure delight to read.
