Description - Beyond the Fight by Carol Preston
Percy Smith has always wondered why he didn't identify with his
father, but he never expected the revelation about his past that comes
at the beginning of the First World War. In shock and pain he finds
himself in a place far from home, where he meets Mabel Smart, a
young woman who is also struggling to find her own identity in
her family. Both Percy and Mabel must confront the issues raised
by the war; internment of German born Australians, the push for
conscription, the rush of young men to fight on the battlefields of
Europe, and divisions in the Australian population over enlistment.
Ultimately Percy and Mabel's search will be about finding a way to be
at peace with their families.
