I was so happy to discover that this one revealed itself to be one of the rare books where you can find yourself in one of the characters. It's also one of those where you never know what's going to happen on the next page, though you know something unexpected IS going to happen. And i expected everything impossible to happen in the end- but not THAT! Its a book where you can dive in the past, and where you meet some very special and interesting characters on their journey from England to Australia just in the beginning of the second world war.
