This could have been a lot better It was passable after the first 100 pages of wondering who are they talking about whats going on the to ing and froing between decades was much too much when you re attempting to establish a story but it eventually settled down into what you d expect when you mash a whole heap of contentious issues together stolen generation vietnam and conscription and forced adoption Its a bit of a mess You ve got people who come and go who take up a bit of time eg Bernie and Jude s relatives and then they don t pop up again Romances that are spoken of and no resolution found etc etc Find something you want to write about and keep the narrative tight It would have been better sticking to one of the issues rather than trying to cover every controversial thing that happened in Australia in the 50 s 70 s I wouldn t recommend this

Australia in 1971 is caught up in the turmoil of conscription for the Vietnam war A lone woman Miki aka Caroline is on a one woman crusade aiding those who want to avoid being forcibly sent to war Constantly on the move and continually evading the law Miki s mission is personal Her son Dominic whom she was forced to give up for adoption is the right age to be conscripted And his birthdate just got drawn in the lotteryGoodby Lullaby swtiches between Miki s campaign in 1971 and her teenage years in the early 1950s She and best friend Jude are just ordinary Catholic schoolgirls in suburban Brisbane until Miki discovers she is pregnant Sent to the notorious St Anthony s home for unwed mothers Miki resists the immense pressure to give her son up a decision she is forced to renegge a few years later when the realities of single parenthood in the 1950s hit homeThe characters of Miki and Jude are well drawn and you cannot help but be taken in by their youthful exuberance and determination to bring up Dominic on their own Miki s raw pain at having to give her child away is evident in the adult she becomes a truth that many women would be able to relate toI thought the book captured the societal expectations of each era well both from parents and institutions like the Catholic Church I m not sure if St Anthony s was a real place in Brisbane but if not there would certainly have been a true life version of itWhile the switching between different eras was easy enough to follow I didn t really get the sense of the different decades involved The early 1950s and early 1970s were poles apart in terms of societal change but to me the 1950s in Goodbye Lullaby seemed to blend into the 1970s In saying that though each was historically accurate with references to relevant happenings of each eraJust to be a bit nit picky the language used in both eras was sometimes inaccurate phrases like eye candy and we re out of here to name a couple were not in use then nor would the term lawyer have been used until uite recently they were always solicitors in Australia The term drafted was also interchanged with conscripted drafted was the American term But this is just a minor uibbleEasy to read and touching on a subject that brough heartbreak to thousands of women Goodbye Lullaby is both poignant and inspiring
