Product Description

Song of Australia puts the reader in the shoes of remarkable characters confronting the difficult life of the home front during the First World War

German-Australians are the largest minority group in the nation as it joins the rest of the British Empire to fight against Germany. How are they to deal with the sudden hostility of their neighbours and the Government? Amid immense suffering caused by conflicting adults, gifted child-musicians want to help the world. An adolescent boy in Adelaide, ‘City of Churches’, believes Christianity is the way to peace. It’s hard to worship with people who believe God wants him to fight—and perhaps die—in war, for the sake of the British Empire.

Exploring timeless themes, Stephen Crabbe’s three connected stories bring to life the state of South Australia in the first years of Federation

About the Author

Stephen Crabbe was born in Adelaide, South Australia. His twin passions from the earliest years were music and language in all its forms. He studied classical pianoforte from the age of five, read books whenever possible and loved to explore all other languages. Stephen took up education as a profession. This career took him into schools in several different roles, but eventually he chose to be a full-time music educator. Writing was always a compulsion for Stephen, but in later years it drew more attention. He contributed scripts for screen productions and wrote articles for online publications. The main focus of his writing now is fiction, especially of the historical kind. He lives in the rural south-west of Australia.
