Maralinga by Judy Nunn( Book )

14 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Judy Nunn's gripping and thought-provoking bestseller. During the darkest days of the cold war, in a remote SA desert, the future of a nation is being decided...Maralinga is the story of British Lieutenant Daniel Gardiner, who accepts a twelve-month posting to the wilds of South Australia on a promise of rapid promotion; Harold Dartleigh, Deputy Director of MI6 and his undercover operative Gideon Melbray; Australian Army Colonel Nick Stratton and the enigmatic Petraeus Mitchell, bushman and anthropologist. They all find themselves in a violent and unforgiving landscape, infected with the unique madness and excitement that only nuclear testing creates. Maralinga is also a story of love; a love so strong that it draws the adventurous young English journalist Elizabeth Hoffmann halfway around the world in search of the truth. And Maralinga is a story of heartbreak; heartbreak brought to the innocent First Australians who had walked their land unhindered for 40,000 years

This legendary story of disaster and depravity is told in alternating chapters with the story of the Galloway family, station owners, and the story of Darwin itself, from the day it was bombed by Japanese fighter planes during WW2 and nearly flattened, to that extraordinary Christmas Day in 1974 when Darwin was again devastated by 'fury from the sky': this time in the form of Cyclone Tracy. Following the course of a priceless 16th century locket and the fortunes of the Galloway clan, Judy Nunn tells a breathtaking story of disaster, courage and passion and that Top End spirit that never says die
Heritage by Judy Nunn( Book )

10 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It was a time when refugees seized with both hands the chance for freedom; a time when people of more than seventy nations gathered beneath the Southern Cross to forge a new national identity. From war-torn Europe, they came to the mountains of Australia to realise one man's dream, and in so doing realised their own. The mighty Snowy Mountains Hydro-Electric Scheme, regarded by many as the greatest engineering feat of the 20th Century, was built with pride from the sweat and blood of displaced people. They were called New Australians. One was 'Lucky', a German Jew seeking refuge in Australia after losing his family in the horror that was known as Endlosung, 'The Final Solution' of Hitler's Third Reich. Another was Pietro, a young Italian immigrant in search of a new life in a strange country far from the mountains of his childhood, which harboured a deadly secret. And then there was the woman from Israel, the woman with a past so steeped in horror that no matter how far she ran, she would never escape the nightmare of Auschwitz or the massacre of Deir Yassin. People of all races and creeds tunnelled through a mountain range and turned the course of a mighty river as they sought to put to rest the ghosts from the inferno of their past
Floodtide by Judy Nunn( Book )

16 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'There is a tide in the affairs of men which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;' Julius Caesar, William Shakespeare. Judy Nunn's ninth novel Floodtide, is a brilliant picture of life in the 'Iron Ore State', Western Australia. It follows a journey from the idyllic, carefree 1950s, through the mineral strikes of the 1970s when vast wealth is acquired and men become powerful beyond their dreams. The avarice of the 1980s sees a new breed arise, and the 90's issues in an age when innocence is lost. The mighty State is brought to its knees by greed, lust, and corruption of such magnitude that it threatens the downfall of the Australian Federal Government. Four young Western Australians travel this journey. Each has their story to tell, and each contributes, for better or for worse, to the changing face of their State. One fights to save the wild and beautiful Pilbara region from the careless ravaging of mining conglomerates, another leads the way in the growth of Perth from a sleepy town on a pretty river, to a glittering citadel of skyscrapers. But each of the four knows one thing - the tides of change are irreversible
Tiger men by Judy Nunn( Book )

This is a tiger town, a place at the bottom of the world where God turns a blind eye to pillage and plunder.' Van Diemen's Land was an island of stark contrasts; a harsh penal colony, an English idyll for its landed gentry, and an island so rich in natural resources it was a profiteer's paradise. Its capital Hobart Town had its contrasts too; the wealthy elite in their sandstone mansions, the exploited poor in the notorious slum known as Wapping, and the criminals and villains who haunted the dockside taverns and brothels of Sullivan's Cove. Hobart Town was no place for the meek. This is a saga of three families who lived through Tasmania's golden era, witnessed the birth of Federation and in 1915, watched their sons off to the Great War

Elianne by Judy Nunn( Book )

7 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1881 'Big Jim' Durham, an English soldier of fortune and profiteer, ruthlessly creates for Elianne Desmarais, his young French wife, the finest of the great sugar mills of the Southern Queensland cane fields, and names it in her honour. The massive estate becomes a self-sufficient fortress, a cane-consuming monster and home to hundreds of workers, but "Elianne' and its masters, the Durham Family, have dark and distant secrets; secrets that surface in the wildest and most inflammatory of times, the 1960s. For Kate Durham and her brothers Neil and Alan, freedom is the catchword of the decade. Young Australians leap to the barricades of the social revolution. Rock ?n' roll, the Pill, the Vietnam War, the rise of Feminism, Asian immigration and the Freedom Ride join forces to rattle the chains of traditional values. The workers leave the great sugar estates as mechanisation lessens the need for labour. And the Durham family, its secrets exposed, begins its fall from grace... "--Back cover

Kalgoorlie was a magnet to anyone with a sense of adventure, anyone who could dream. People were drawn there from all over the world, settling to start afresh or to seek their fortunes. They called it Kal.

The Australian family are the Brearleys: Maudie, who runs the miners' pub in Kalgoorlie and who was brought up in a tent on the goldfields; her husband 'Flash Harry' Brearley, charismatic conman and shyster; and his young son, Jack. The Italian family are the Giannis, railway workers from a small village in the Italian Alps, who dream of making a better life for themselves 'at the bottom of the world' after they hear about the Western Australian goldrush of the late 1880s
