Secondhand. Very good condition. Some light wear to edges. Previous owner has inscribed inside cover.
Fay lives on windswept Breaksea Island with only her journal to confide in, but life changes dramatically in 1914 when war is declared and the 30,000 men of the combined Australian and New Zealand Imperial Forces gather in Albany.
Fay becomes a lifeline for homesick soldiers desperate to send a final telegraph message to their loved ones. She continues the long- distance conversations with letters and postcards, following the fortunes of her soldiers from Egypt to Gallipoli.
Then one day a single sad letter arrives and the war is brought brutally home.
