Free read Goodbye Lullaby ê PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free In September 1971 181 numbered marbles roll around in a barrel while Australia holds its breath The last number drawn will shatter two women's lives and bring them together again Sixteen year old Caroline ‘Miki' Patrick confides to her best friend the outspoken smart mouthed Jude that she's pregnant Miki's parents place her in the iron embrace of St Anthony's a home for Goodbye Lullaby tells the story of Miki a sixteen year old who finds herself pregnant who at the advice of her best friend Jade decides to raise her baby Two decades later Miki is an anti war activist on the run trying to avoid the federal police and protect her son from the conscription lottery When Jade comes back into Miki s life they will stop at nothing to try and save her son going to warThis is a multi layered story full of very real issues ranging from religion parenthood friendship war and so much This novel is written in two different perspectives life as a sixteen year old in the 1950 s and then being a parent during the Vietnam War While this seems to work pretty well in this book I think there were elements that didn t work I felt like author Jan Murray wanted to convey too many issues instead of just a few This resulted in a glossing over effect with some of the story and no real focus with the most serious issues in the novelI really enjoyed the coming of age style of Miki and Jade s life in the 1950 s at times it felt very much like trying to be Puberty Blues and at other times it was trying to make a thoughtful plot but I found a little hard to tell if the author wanted me to have fun reading this or take it seriously The other narrative didn t seem to have that same issue it felt very serious and often bordering into a very dry plot The constant switching between the two narratives help avoid making this a boring read but it felt too clunky switching between the twoI did enjoy young Miki and Jade they were wonderful characters full of life mischief and big dreams but what happened to them when they grew up It felt like they grew into one dimensional characters I never really felt like they were the same people just completely new As adults they had real issues to deal with but getting pregnant at sixteen is a big issue and that didn t stop them from being larger than life so I m not sure what happened in the twenty years between but I m a little curious to know what shrunk them back to sizeOverall this was a feel good cosy read which tries to hit on some important issues but if you gloss over that you just have a light frivolous novel The writing really wasn t the best I think the author loved saying each character s names because she does it a lot But as a whole this book was enjoyable to read without holding any real depth For someone looking for a summer read about a woman and her love for her son maybe give this book a goThis review originally appeared on my blog
