Description

With native intelligence and grit, and her father’s diary to guide her, Eliza inspires a drifter to help her in her quest. The town with its enclave of Europeans rule the natives and multinational communities at the bottom of society.

This discovery made Broome — a sweltering, remote town at the edge of the Indian Ocean — the center of the world’s lucrative mother-of-pearl industry in the late 19th century. Beautifully immersive and undeniably moving, Lizzie Pook’s Australian Centred, historical debut was an absolutely breathtaking read! After all, they dive into the deep waters to bring shells, and the owners sell the pearls to make money. When her father disappears off his pearling boat and a native man is accused of killing him Eliza is determined that she must do whatever necessary to find him as she is not convinced her father is dead.Moonlight and the Pearler’s Daughter is the debut novel by Aussie author Lizzie Pook and it was outstanding! Men only interested in money, and not at all concerned with the treatment of his those in his employ.

Eliza's nerve and determination makes her the perfect protagonist to take the reader on this mystery solving journey, as she faces off against corrupt and unfeeling townsfolk in the quest to find out what's happened to her father.The sun-scorched streets of Bannin Bay, a place she once thought she knew so well, are teeming with corruption, prejudice, and blackmail. Set in the harsh, unforgiving land that is outback Western Australia, the constant heat, flies and any number of other insects and things that bite, the reality was vivid. I found myself completely immersed in the rich, atmospheric, and riveting storytelling, in the time and place, the twists and turns, the vibrant and unflinching portrayal of the corruption, deceptions, blackmail, and violence that underpin the Bannin Bay community and the pearling business, the criminal underbelly, and the numerous unsavoury individuals.
