Brothels, fortune tellers, and all forms of bohemian lifestyles are present and acceptable within its borders. At the encouragement of a friend, our heroine Harriett Purcell, an X-Ray tech from a stable family leaves home and rents a room in "The House".
Almost immediately she gives her heart to Flo, the mute, 4 year old daughter of her unorthodox landlady. Flo becomes Harriett's "Angel" and she battles the inevitable tragedy in The House for this little child.
I am such a devotee of anything Colleen McCullough, even I was mesmerized with the love and tenacity she develops for her heroine. The depravity of life within The House becomes secondary to this gripping tale. I couldn't put it down! Set in the s this tells the story of Harriet Purcell and how she moved away from her conventional family and repressive boyfriend and found love and independence in Sydney's Kings Cross.
Set at a time when women were expected to marry and settle down, giving up their jobs if they had one, Harriet trains to become an X-ray technician at a city hospital and earns enough to rent a small apartment in an alternative household in Kings Cross. She discovers new food, new people and new experiences and gets to meet whores, lesbians, policemen and the eclectic mixture of tennants at her boarding house. Her landlady, Mrs Delvecchio Schwartz is indeed a 'character', with her tarot cards and crystal ball and down to Earth wit and wisdom.
She is convinced that Harriet is essential to the future of the boarding house.
This is a wonderful story, full of humour, coloured by the sights and atmosphere of Sydney's underbelly in Kings Cross, where the author herself lived in the s. Colleen McCullough explores the medical field and Australia, again, in this novel about a young woman moving out of her staid home and wanting excitement in her life, including sex. She finds both.
Set in the Sydney area in the early 60's? She rejoices in her element! Her landladies daughter is intriguing to her. The story builds and while some is not a surprise, there is a twist. For fans of Ms. I really enjoyed "Angel" as in the 60's I lived and worked at one of the hospitals mentioned in the book so I knew the area very well and have many fond thoughts of that era. As I read the book I could see The Cross as it was back then, when we would walk the streets late at night with no fear of anything bad happening to us.
I loved the characters in the book as Colleen McCullough has a lovely way of writing and makes the characters very real people, I am going to nominate it for my book club discussion group. Paperback Verified download. I always loved Thorn Birds, and have read other books by McCullough, and this one kept right up with my interest.
She writes on different subjects, but can capture the imagination of any reader on whatever the subject is. Yes, this was a great book, not for men however, as my husband called it a 'womans book', but thats not to scare men away, it was a very lovely book from start to end. It was quite captivating. Really a lovely book for this grandma to read. I think McCullough and Nevil Chute are 2 of my favourite authors.
Upon commencing this book I thought it threatened to be a Mills and Boon romance, and yet another book about mid- twentieth centuary nursing. However, I soon warmed to the tale of develop of a quiet girl into a strong and wise woman in a male dominated world. I am old enough to have had a view, although shaped by my age and upbringing, of Sydney at a time which some would see the last days of Sydney's golden years.
This is a short book and a fascinating opportunity to take a vicarious trip through the growth of independence in an age of change. Need I say more?

Absolutely loved this book!!! Rollicking good read. As you would expect from Colleen McCullough this is a page-turner. Intelligent and well researched, it's a slightly spooky tale of an ordinary girl drawn into an extraordinary house in s Kings Cross where she dicovers love in many forms … Show more Show less.
As always Colleen never fails, a bit of humour ,tragedy and just all about life. I really enjoyed this book, would have liked a follow up.Dan Jones.
