Eventual poppy day by Libby Hathorn

Eventual Poppy day by Libbie HathornGood timing for this book as it is the Centenary of ANZAC. Thoroughly researched and written by the wonderful author Libby Hathorn, this novel weaves seamlessly back and forth through time. Seventeen year old Oliver Roche is trying to deal with difficult family circumstances when he is handed his great-great uncle Maurice’s WW1 diary. Reading the diary obviously changes how Oliver sees the world but I became more engrossed in a secondary character, Oliver’s great- grandmother, whose humorous activities in the background of the story help to glue the whole story together. Recommended for ages: 14+
