      I felt a connection to the book through the familiarity of the setting of Katoomba and it was intriguing to learn more of the history of the area through this fictional tale. I felt, however, that the climax was a little anticlimactic and the resolution hurried. I would love to read more books set in my local area and evoking that sense of time and space but I feel this book was lacking spark.

    2. Blue Mountains Library says:

      Set in Katoomba this is a beautifully written story of turn of the 19th / 20th Century living and working in the mines at the bottom of what is now Scenic World and follows the progress of half brothers Clancy and Byron Wilson. H.C

      A lovely evocation of a lively period in the Blue Mountains, and of the light and dark in our ridges and valleys. Some of the images Mark O'Flynn conjures are haunting me. I won't say which ones.

      I sought out this book as I had particularly enjoyed this author's novel The Last Days of Ava Langdon. As the Blue Mountains are a favourite spot of mine I was optimistic. The first 40 pages or so lived up to my expectations. Thereafter my interest waned. In places it is very 'left leaning' though this did understandably suit the story line.

    5. Just says:

      I found this book a bit hard to get into in the beginning but I persevered and finished it. Not the best book I've ever read but certainly not the worst. About halfway through I started to get interested in finding out what happened to Clancy and who got the girl.

    6. Kerryn Lawson says:

      I neither loved nor hated this book. I found it hard to remain interested at times with no real flow to the storytelling. I was curious how the story would finish but I felt that there wasn't really a story as such just a recount of a period of one persons life.
