Publisher's Summary

In fear for their lives after the sudden death of their mother, Adéla and Klára must flee Prague to find refuge with their uncle in Australia. Later, Adéla becomes a film director at a time when the local industry is starting to feel the competition from Hollywood. But even while success is imminent, the issues of family and an impossible love are never far away. And ultimately dreams of the silver screen must compete with the bonds of a lifetime.
Silver Wattle confirms Belinda Alexandra as one of our foremost storytellers. Weaving fact into inspiring fiction with great flair and imagination, this is a novel as full of hope, glamour and heartbreak as the film industry itself.

a really terrific read

This is one of the best books I have ever read or listened to. I found the setting of Prague fascinating and then secret migration of the young sisters to Australia kept me in suspence as the story unfolded. Having spent my childhood in Watsons Bay, but of course at a later date, it added extra personal interest for me. The narration by Caroline Lee was excellent. I couldn't wait to start the next Belinda Alexandra novel.

Rivals 'Golden Earrings', my all time FAVORITE

Wonderful detailed story. Love how she takes you through numerous chapters of her characters lives. And, Caroline Lee is one of my top favorite narrators. She brings the book to life.

Well researched and a believable story

I found it hard to put down, wanting to know the next chapter. Sometimes predictable however it depicted the times therefore needed to be predictable to be real. Thank you.
