Jessica by Bryce Courtenay
Jessica nickname Tea Leaf
Joe her father
Hester the mother and Mag the elder sister who reckon Jack as the perfect rich husband
Jack who dies at war
Just another STUPID-AND-HELPLESS-GIRL story, but it’s twisted with the big background of histories of Aboriginal tribes in Australia. All in all IT’s a sad story, not the kind of bad-ending, but the kind that amplifies that life is just so tiny and weak.
