The Hanging Garden, Paperback Book


Two children are brought to a wild garden on the shores of Sydney Harbour to shelter from the Second World War.

The boy's mother has died in the Blitz. The girl is the daughter of a Sydney woman and a Communist executed in a Greek prison.

In wartime Australia, these two children form an extraordinary bond as they negotiate the dangers of life as strangers abandoned on the far side of the world.
