The first book for Term 2 is Moonlight and the Pearler''s Daughter, by Lizzie Pook. This is an historical novel with the vivid and unique setting of North Western Australia in the 1880s. A Master Pearler disappears in suspicious circumstances and his daughter Eliza attempts to solve the mystery. In seeking out the truth she uncovers the corruption, prejudice and blackmail beneath the glamorous veneer of pearling. This is a compelling adventure novel about the early halcyon days of the pearling industry in Australia.
