Review: Big River Little Fish

Big River Little FishBig River Little Fish by Belinda Jeffrey
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It is the 1950s, and for a boy who was born ‘out of wedlock’, to a mother that died at his birth, was found by an aboriginal man, grows up with loving but austere foster parents, and has dyslexia – well, let say that Tom has a hard life.

Belinda Jeffrey coaxes this story along, teases out the all the little details, until you are totally immersed in Tom’s world.

Set against the life of the tiny town of Swan Reach on the Murray River, Big River Little Fish is a magic tale of a bygone era, when hard living and small town gossip can drive a man to drink.
