What a read! The Gallipoli campaign has just made me realise (again) how senseless war is. Brilliant book - brilliantly written! Read full review

Review: Solomon's Song (The Potato Factory #3)

User Review  - Michelle - Goodreads

The Potato Factory trilogy was eye-opening. I had no sense of the history of Australia but now I have an appreciation for the people and how they built a nation. Solomon's Song brought me to tears many times, especially during the Galipolli battles. Heartbreaking end. Read full review
