Thursday's Child by Sonya Hartnett

During the long, hungry years of the Great Depression, Harper Flute's family struggles to cope with life on the hot, dusty land. Her younger brother Tin seeks refuge in the contrast of an ancient subterranean world. A world that nurtures but - as disturbing events in the community reveal - can also kill. A world that is silent, yet absorbs secrets. A world that has the power to change lives for ever. Sometimes you have to dig deep to survive...

Thursday's Child Reviews

Beautifully written, subtle and haunting. * The Scotsman *
A lyrical, almost dreamlike account of a family's struggle to cope with the harshness of life in the Australian outback during the Depression. * Financial Times *
The writing never falters. The book has an immensely powerful realisation of pace, compelling characters, soul tearing moments, and atmosphere that seeps into your life. * Books For Keeps *
