In honour of Australia Day 2015 and in commemoration of the anniversary of World War I I’m participating in the Australia Day Book Giveaway Blog Hop hosted by Shelleyrae of BOOK’D OUT.

I have a lightly read uncorrected bound proof of Steve Sailah’s A Fatal Tide to give away to a resident in Australia. It’s a well-written book and I’ve written a few words about it here.

  1. I loved Ronan’s Echo by Joanne van Os it’s an historical romance so it appeals to readers who love war novels and also romance readers

  2. To be honest, I don’t think I’ve really read books from many authors from the WWI era. To give further honesty, I don’t think I’d know where to begin. I did have to read many Colin Thiele stories for school, but I didn’t really enjoy some of them. Or did you mean Australian authors who wrote about the war? I don’t know about that either… Sorry!
    The book I think everyone should read, by an Australian author (to keep in theme) is The Messenger by Markus Zusak; it is such a great and thoughtful book.

  3. My favourite World War I Australian author is something I can not answer as I can’t recall ever reading any. I do have a copy of a letter a relative sent to their mother from WW1 but that is all.
    So many Australian authors to choose from but Ivan Southall has written some amazing novels.

  4. off the top of my head the only book I can think of with WW1 is a book that im reading at the moment “The Year it all ended” by Kirsty Murray. Im half way though the book at the moment and love how it is set in Australia and shows how war changes life for everyone and not just the men that went off to fight but those that were left at home. How even though the war ends the scars remain.

  5. I loved Nightingale by Fiona McIntosh, the love between Australian soldier Jamie and British nurse Claire was unforgettable.

  6. I’ve got the novel but wanted to drop by nonetheless. As I think you know I’m still only just starting to read more Australian fiction and really need to keep on that!


  7. My son in law is a prolific reader of both ww1 and 2books and the one I have read from his collection is My mothers eyes by Mark Wilson.
    Thanks for the chance to win
    Happy Australia day
