Finding Theodore and Brina is an engaging and absorbing story of an Australian family five generations old.
Starting with her great-grandparents who travelled from London to Australia in the 1850s: one as a convict, one as a free settler; both Jewish, the author traces the lives of forebears and, in so doing, uncovers and reveals the transgressions, taboos and secrets that have remained hidden within the family.
As details of madness, convictism, illegitimacies and miscegenation emerge, the author is forced to confront the truth about her family and, of course, herself.
The book is a powerful testament to the delicacy and complexity of family and relationships. (publisher blurb)
