Congratulations to my Aunty Jo (one of Australia's best writers). Her new novel "Ronan's Echo" came out last week and it's a terrific read. It takes us from a World War 1 battlefield in France to modern day Sydney, following forensic anthropologist Kat Kelso as she uncovers secrets from her own family's history.

"Ronan's Echo" by Joanne Van Os, published by Pan Macmillan Australia.
