Publisher Description

Gum Nuts and Weeping Willows is a fictionalised story based on extraordinary true events, starting with the author’s great grandparents’ sea journey from London to Australia in the 1800s, and follows the life of the Jack family.


Set against the tremendous opportunities opened up by the industrial revolution, with its new technologies and associated social changes, the book explores issues of poverty, workers’ conditions and the status of women. The story also delves into issues surrounding migration as the Jack family prepare to embrace a new culture and put down new roots, even if life doesn’t always go in their favour. A touching story in which the Jack family not only act against a historical back-drop, but are formed by it.
