Kal is a fabulous Australian saga/adventure. Judy's mother Nancy grew up on the Kalgoorlie goldfields. Her father was a miner. When Judy was researching Kal, she and her mother went back there and spoke to many people about their memories of the town. The result is a portrait of a town that really lives on the pages, with a skilfully evoked sense of place and character. Kal contains generations of families, two fabulous love stories, gripping adventure, character-led drama, immaculately researched war passages and memorable and engaging characters. It is also Australian in the way many books try to be, but few succeed, and will appeal to both male and female readers.
