When civil war comes to Bougainville, the mine shuts down and the white men leave. The only remaining white man, the strange and fascinating Mr Watts who tows his black wife Grace around on a trolley, takes over teaching in the school by reading the children Great Expectations. This gives the young Matilda an escape but also forms the battleground between her and her religious mother. This is a wonderful book, incredibly moving, sad, and uplifting.

I really enjoyed this book. It was a great read, sad in places. I didn't think much of the ending.
