The Merry-Go-Round in the Sea

Author(s): Randolph Stow


In 1941, Rob Coram is six. The war feels far removed from his world of aunties and cousins and the beautiful, dry landscape of Geraldton in Western Australia. But when his favourite, older cousin, Rick, leaves to join the army, the war takes a step closer. When he returns from the war years later, he has changed and Rob feels betrayed.
