The Stars In The Night

(1 review)

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.
