The Stars In The Night

(3 reviews)

Harry Fletcher is a confident young man.

Harry’s sure that he will marry Nora MacTiernan, no matter what their families say. He’s certain that he will always be there to protect Eddie, the boy his father saved from the gutters of Port Adelaide.

Only the War to End All Wars might get in the way of Harry’s plans…

From the beaches of Semaphore to the shores of Gallipoli, the mud of Flanders to the red dust of inland South Australia, this is a story of love, brotherhood, and resilience.

  1. Kate Murdoch

    The Stars in the Night is a poignant and well-told story about the deep bonds between men who served on the Western Front and Gallipoli, and the women who loved them. It is an intimate exploration of the losses of war and the courage required to start anew. – Kate Murdoch, author of Stone Circle.

  2. K, Adelaide

    This book has been a remarkable gift to my family. My grandfather, a kind and caring man, was born in the mid north of South Australia and left to go to the western front from Semaphore in 1916. On his return he never spoke a single word about his war experiences. The Stars in the Night helps us, his grandchildren, finally understand not only his silence but so much else about him.

    This is fantastically researched and written.  Clare has done an absolutely wonderful job of bringing this story to life, and looking at the sensitivities and experiences of war.  I will come back to this book time and time again, it’s a truly beautiful but heart-wrenching story.  Most definitely recommended by me.
