AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The Sydney Harbour Bridge might look good on postcards, but it's a different thing if you have to live right under it, like Cherry and her kid brother, Sam. Their mum runs a boarding house and she's so busy all the time she forgets how to dream. But things change when Mr Edmund comes to stay. He believes that dreams can come true and he's going to show them all how to make sure they do.'
