This book was not my normal choice of reading, but after reading Black Diamonds and loving it, I had to read another Kim kelly book. This had me up til 2 am 3 nights in a row. just one more chapter and 4 hours later with the words blurring I was reluctantly putting it down. Olivia, Eoghan and Agnes were such wonderful characters. I loved little Agnes' ability to see magic all around her. I loved the descriptive way that Kim used to describe the people and the places. The use of clothing choices and designs was a new take on things and I really enjoyed it and they were like a character all by themselves. The characters around the main characters were also wonderfully portrayed. The history of the building of Sydney harbour bridge and the politics at that time were very interesting, I'm glad I didn't have to work up there, I'd have been terrified. I love learning about the history of our country and getting an insight into how people got by. The unemployment situation there has parallels to what is happening in my state at the moment, let's hope it doesn't continue the way it does in the Blue Mile. A fabulous story I can't wait to read another Kim Kelly novel
