Book Review: Jessica by Bryce Courtenay - Reviewed by sudy01 (29 May 2011)
Excellent book as I have come to expect from this author. Along with the general story which is very enthralling is a subtle, but powerful learning experience. An insight into prejudice, Aboriginal status and lineage, and the attitudes of the past. Some of these unfortunately still exist today I believe. It is good to remember that this book was suggested as a true story which, in his own creative style, Mr Courtenay has turned into an interesting and worthwhile book. I would certainly recommend this book and have reread it and referred to it as I believe that the research Mr Courtenay undertakes means that facts and information presented in his books are correct - even though the stories are usually fiction.
