I enjoyed this. It‘s a time slip novel that explores Australian history and reconciliation. Not quite as good as Inheritance at the reckoning but still a good read.

Forgot to post the other day. I went to the launch of The Surprising Power of a Good Dumpling, where there were dumplings, and it was great. Really enjoying reading so far and it was very interesting to hear Wai Chim talk about the choices she made writing this book.
It deals with important topics like mental illness, racism and microagressions. #loveozya
