Kaleidoscope by Diane Eklund-Abolins: A Book Review

Kaleidoscope Author: Diane Eklund-Abolins Genre: Historical Fiction Publisher: Aoe Publishing Release Date: 2021 Pages: 374 Source: This book was given to me by the author in exchange for an honest review. Synopsis: It is 1917, and a war in Europe is also being felt in Australia as young men sign up in their thousands. Some of them anticipate adventure; others believe that fighting for England is the right thing to do.

Past injustices, domestic violence and society's perspective on women twist around the central themes of war and Bridget's crime.       My Review: Bridget has committed a dreadful crime that would result in her being hanged. To save herself from tha
