The Secret World Of Annette Robinson by Paulette Gittins
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


A novel of Australia in the 1950s, full of mysteries, lies and fabulous dreams. Make no mistake. this is a neighbourhood unbeautiful and unique, of madnesses and history, of dreams and hilarity, of brilliant and heroic animals that reveal truths and show you the way, of murder and music, and it is mine. ten-year-old Annette Robinson lives with her family in the big boarding house at No. 49 Murray Street, Kings Cross. It's a now-vanished world of wirelesses and Sunday roasts, of battlers, bashers and beloved friends, a world where children are Seen But Not Heard. But Annette has another, secret world, full of questions. Where is Aunty Julie? And why will no-one tell her? What was Daddy doing in Rushcutters Bay Park, and what is behind the mysterious locked door? At night, Annette dreams of flying over Kings Cross, and has terrifying nightmares about a ghostly grey lady at the top of the stairs. Inevitably, these two worlds cannot be kept apart forever. 'captivating' - Australian Women's Weekly 'imaginative, clever and funny' - Courier-Mail
