    I don t need to say much about the book itself, because there are alreadythan enough good reviews, both here, and on other forums Put simply, it is the story of what might have been, the story of a clash of cultures, and the story of dispossession When I first finished the book, I felt it was one that every Australian should read But I am saddened by some of the Goodreads reviews sure, not everyone has to like a book, and I agree that this one meandered through time and stories, but it I don t need to say much about the book itself, because there are alreadythan enough good reviews, both here, and on other forums Put simply, it is the story of what might have been, the story of a clash of cultures, and the story of disp...
