Bluey O'Donnell and Ellen Sommers are childhood sweethearts ready to take on the world when news of the war hits their quiet country town. Spurred on by thoughts of glory, and physically strong from a lifetime of hard work on his family's property, Bluey rushes to enlist and is soon on his first overseas posting. Ellen, left behind to help manage the farm, lives in the hope that she will see Bluey again, and guards a special secret through the anxious wait for his return. But nothing can prepare the couple for what lies ahead. As Bluey faces the greatest battle of his life, Ellen must make a heart-wrenching choice. This is a stirring and inspiring saga of a family torn apart by war, its unforgettable characters proving beyond doubt that love is stronger than fear.

About Herb Hamlet

Herb Hamlet grew up in the Brisbane suburb of Wynnum and left school at fourteen to work in an iron foundry. At twenty-one he joined the army, serving with the Royal Australian Engineers for six years. During that time, he gained his matriculation by correspondence and upon his discharge, joined the Australian Public Service, rising to a management position. Herb Hamlet now lives a quiet life with his wife, Lyn, on Queensland's Sunshine Coast. After accepting early retirement, he gained a degree in political science and international studies at the University of the Sunshine Coast. The writing bug then hit him and he has been busy ever since. Bluey's War is his second published work.
