I am not a big fan of sagas, but I did enjoy "Gallipoli Street". Spanning over twenty years readers are taken from the trenches of Gallipoli to the jungles of the Kokoda Trail as they follow the lives of three families. With the hundredth anniversary of the landing of Gallipoli celebrated last year, I found this a poignant story of love, war, sacrifice, friendship and families. Well done Ms O'Connor. ( )

At 17, Veronica O?Shay is happier running wild on the family farm than behaving in the ladylike manner her mother requires, and she despairs both of her secret passion for her brother?s friend Jack Murphy and what promises to be a future of restraint and compliance.? But this is 1913 and the genteel tranquillity of rural Beecroft is about to change forever as the O?Shay and Murphy families, along with their friends the Dwyers, are caught up in the theatre of war and their fates become intertwined. From the horrors of Gallipoli to the bloody battles of the Somme, through love lost and found, the Great Depression and the desperate jungle war along the Kokoda Track, this sprawling family drama brings to life a time long past? a time of desperate love born in desperate times and acts of friendship against impossible odds. A love letter to Australian landscape and character, Gallipoli Street celebrates both mateship and the enduring quality of real love. But more than that, this book shows us where we have come from as a nation, by revealing the adversity and passions that forged us. A stunning novel that brings to life the love and courage that formed our Anzac tradition.… (more)
