AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'There was only ever one woman in the life of Jamie Niland. But Elvie McKenzie, scarred by loss and humiliation, has learned too well that if you don't love, you don't get hurt. As the once booming pearling town of Broome dies around them and war looms, the secret that links their destinies draws them together even as it tears them apart. She thinks she is safe from the world, until the Japanese bombers appear overhead. He leaves to look for a new future and instead finds himself drawn back to his past. Stairway to the Moon brings to stunning conclusion the story of passion, pride and yearning spanning four decades of turbulent history that began with Pearls.' (Publisher's blurb)
