Audible Editor Reviews

Friday the 13th is an unlucky day for Hannah Gordon, even as she celebrates her birthday, as well as her daughter's, under a full moon, in February 1948. A tragic accident commences a tumultuous year for Hannah, struggling to take care of her children after her husband leaves her and she loses her job due to a change in Australian law following World War II. Ann Whitehead peppers Australia Street with rich details of inner-city Sydney, and Julie Nihill's hardscrabble style perfectly suits the working-class setting while also giving Hannah a hardy strength even as her life turns upside down.

Publisher's Summary

Wonderful writing with all the hallmarks of a Ruth Park novel. Australia Street, with its cast of endearing and memorable characters, makes for a superb listening experience.

Friday the 13th of February 1948 is Hannah Gordon's 36th birthday. Her daughter, Allie, turns 16 on the very same day. What's more, it's a full moon. Hannah doesn't need Grandma Ade's warning that bad luck is coming to realise the odds are against them.

Hannah Gordon has always wanted to be someone important, yet she's stuck in an inner-city back street, fighting to keep hold of her children, her home, and her sense of self. Then a devastating accident sets off a chain of events that will rock the family foundations to the core and change lives forever.
