    One thought on “The Indigo Sky”

    1. Absolutely loved this novel, which is the 2nd in the trilogy about the sleepy little town of Jingera, in southern NSW. We met Zidra and her mum, Ilona, Peter Vincent, and the other wonderful cast of characters in Stillwater Creek. Alison Booth has a wonderful way with words, with the many vivid descriptions of the bush and surrounding areas making you feel you could actually see what she was describing. One of my favourite paragraphs ‘Tonight she and Lorna were both looking at the big mob star [...]

    2. ‘And tomorrow would be another day.’‘The Indigo Sky’ is the sequel to Ms Booth’s debut novel, ‘Stillwater Creek’ and sees a return to the fictional town of Jingera on the New South Wales south coast four years later. It is now 1961, and while Jingera is still idyllic with its clear blue skies, its surf and its beautiful lagoon, much has changed for at least some of its inhabitants. Ilona Talivaldis and her daughter Zidra, the former refugees we met in ‘Stillwater Creek’ are now [...]

    3. This is a sequel to Stillwater Creek. Booth is an Economics professor at ANU and writes in her ‘other life’. The setting is appealing – a small south coast country town somewhere south of Bermagui, an area I know well. There is a love of country there. The previous novel was set in the fifties and this in the early sixties. There is a concern for Aboriginal rights, for people who have suffered in wartime and for outsiders. Lorna, one of the main child characters in Stillwater Creek, has be [...]

    4. Having already read Stillwater Creek, it was interesting to read The Indigo Sky and follow the lives of the characters introduced in the first book. The book contains several different plots carefully woven together to create both tension and suspense, and the geographical background to the novel has been well researched. The right of each individual to live the life he or she wants to live is explored through issues as widespread as international injustice (in the case of war), domestic injusti [...]

    5. I loved The Indigo Sky. Two young people — one dispossessed and impoverished, the other wealthy and privileged — are both on a journey they can't control in this moving novel about family, friendship, and personal freedom. This is the second novel in the Jingera Trilogy (set in the village of Jingera, on the south coast NSW), and again it has a wonderful collection of characters. The characters, plotting and descriptive writing are brilliant, and the story has a deeply satisfying conclusion. [...]

    6. Because reviews of this book used the word 'charming', I almost didn't buy it! - but I am very glad I did. The story is beautifully drawn, although there is steel underlying the charm as Booth grapples with important issues, including the Stolen Generations. The characters are both quirky and compelling, and the plot so gripping that I read the last half of the book in one sitting in order to discover the fate of the protagonists.

    7. "The Indigo Sky" by Alison Booth, was relatively easy to read. Simple story, though a bit hard to get into at the start. Was surprised that the author was an Australian, as she seems to use a different speech pattern from most Australians, and has named items and places in a very naive style, which would suit a foreign author better.

    8. A nice enough story, but lacking depth. This is the sequel to, Stillwater Creek, which I haven't-and won't-read. If it's anything like this one, I don't know why Booth was offered a 2-book deal. Anyway, it passed the time. There are some potentially good characters, and stories, here. It's such a shame the author didn't put her soapbox aside for five minutes and concentrate on them a bit more.

    9. This is the second book in the trilogy. I enjoyed this book, an easy read but touches on important issues ie bullying, the treatment of Aborigines in the 1960s and the importance of family/good friends.

    10. I loved this evocative, warm-hearted story. It is told with grace, sensitivity and a wonderful command of characterization. The last third was really absorbing - I couldn't put the book down until I'd finished it. The character Philip stayed with me for days afterwards.

    11. So happy to meet all these wonderful characters again. The story kept me hooked until the end. A really enjoyable read. Onto the last one in the series now.

    12. One of a trilogy set in the fifties in a northern NSW beachside town with a rural backdrop. A story of the times simply told which gives an accurate depiction of events of the day.

    13. Another good read - although a bit predictable and sometimes too contrived. But it was an enjoyable and easy read and I'm looking forward to reading the third book in this trilogy.
