To The White Gate
Paperback | English
In a park in an antipodean city in the 1930s a teenaged boy starts work as an apprentice nurseryman.
It’s an idyllic world. Patient and unhurried, with a pace as predictable as the seasons. A miniature version of the pre-war colonial empire lying just beyond the park gates. But as secure as the park may seem it can’t protect anyone, least of all Tommy, from the changing world outside.
There’s a war coming. An unwanted baby and heartbreaking changes at home.
Through it all the park is a constant. A companion, a teacher, a home and a friend.
