I have read a lot of books, over 300 and I have about 100 favourites but now I can say that 'To Love A Sunburnt Country' by Jackie French is the best book I have ever read. I have read all of the Matilda Saga and loved every single one, but this book was the best one yet. This book was a whirlwind of emotions the entire way through, I could not put it down.
The novel follows the story of young Nancy, her sister in law and the other ladies that are imprisoned in a prison camp during World War II. The chapters also switch POV between men in the war, the Japanese soldiers and the people back home which was AMAZING. Nancy's story along with the other women and service men was absolutely touching and so inspiring to read and made me love my country even more. This story was heartbreaking, wonderful and heartfelt, lots of tears were shed!
I recommend this book for everyone to read as it is such a beautiful story with wonderful characters and a story line that needs to be told!
