Jack and Jill

Author(s): Helen Hodgman


Jill and her dad are happy enough after her mother dies. Theirs is a simple life in the outback, far from the big city where a coathanger is being built across a sparkling harbour. Until Jack arrives at their door one evening, and steps inside to find the skinny, wild-looking child sitting with her grim-faced father. It's the start of all Jill's problems. "Absence makes the heart grow fonder," threatens Jack, as he marches off to war. And he's right, in a way - but this is no ordinary romance. Spanning the period from the Depression to the freewheeling '60s, Helen Hodgman's award-winning book is a masterpiece, a twisted fairytale told with her characteristic dark wit.
