At The Foot of The Cherry Tree

by Alli Parker

Review by Isabelle

This is a heartwarming yet realistic novel about devotion, war, and the lengths people go to for love. Based on the true story of Australian soldier Gordon and ‘Cherry’ – a girl struggling to survive in post WWII Japan. Cherry and Gordon fight to overturn the White Australia policy, which prevented Cherry from going to Australia with her husband.
