    y My Father's Moon Elizabeth Jolley , Ringwood : Viking , 1989 Z206273 1989 single work novel (taught in 1 units) 'Vera is young, awkward and naive. As a schoolgirl, she has her sheltered idealism, her Quaker boarding-school education, and the warm, enveloping sense of security of her parents. As a student nurse during the war, her transition into womanhood is rapid, painful and disastrous. And as an unmarried mother she flees from the nagging tension of her home and the hospital gossip to Fairfields, a place of poetry, music and of people with interesting lives and ideas. Quickly she learns it is otherwise. Yet, for Vera, there is always the moon - her companion, comforter, and the unbreakable link with her father...' (Publisher's blurb, 2008 Penguin publication.) Camberwell : Penguin , 2008
