That uestions what it is to remember and how tempting it can be to forget‘Kate Mildenhall’s impressive debut novel takes an historical case and re imagines it with such sensitivity and insight that we feel this must be how it truly happened’ Emily Bit. Set in a tiny lighthouse community in the Jervis Bay area towards the end of the 19th century this is the story of best friends Kate and Harriet Kate is the younger by a couple of years smart bookish uite wilful and supremely confident in the physical environment where her father is the head lighthouse keeper In many ways Harriet the blond beautiful only child seems less mature But this probably helps to make their relationship eual The story is told from Kate s point of view and Mildenhall has managed to provide her with a really strong consistent voice over the 6 7 years in which the story unfoldsAs the girls begin to blossom into young women the arrival a handsome fisherman in the settlement causes strain between the friends He only has eyes for one but it is the other who has disuieting dreams about kissing him The tension builds steadily until the situation is resolved in the most dreaded wayI enjoyed every page of this debut novel by Kate Mildenhall After hearing her speak at MWF 2016 I thought I had a pretty good idea of how this story inspired by a true historical incident was going to play out but I had it all wrong and that made the tragic climax all the uietly devastating for meAn excellent example of historical speculative fiction set in Australia
