Light, gentle story but not entirely to my taste
So I finally finished this book. It captured me initially but not exactly a page-turner that had me hooked. The characters were all highly relatable to me but we never completely get to know them all. The author’s Aboriginal heritage is on strong display here, but I couldn’t help feeling it was a bit of a crusade of hers to constantly reference the characters’ culture. Could be just me not relating to that aspect (as a white woman), although some of the historical facts were interesting. I normally read thrillers so found it difficult to get into this book, but it is a gentle, meandering story about a group of girlfriends living in current-day Brisbane.
