Sydney, 1942. Pearl is 18, beautiful and impetuous. She plays saxophone in an all-girl jazz band at the Trocadero and occasionally sits in on underground gigs with her twin brother Martin, who also plays the sax. On one such evening black GI and jazz legend James Washington blows into her life, and nothing is ever the same again, especially not Pearl. A love story begins to unfold against the blacked-out nights and rumour-filled days of a city in the grip of war. But public events are closing in on Pearl's private world. When James is shipped out to fight in New Guinea, she hatches a breathtaking plan to reunite with him. And then all hell breaks loose. Moving, tender and audaciously original, Love in the Years of Lunacy is a love story with a haunting jazz soundtrack and a war story like no other.

    " A wonderful book that portrays the WW2 years in Sydney. What a twist at the end! "

    " This was a surprising book - but that's what you read for I guess. Mandy Sayer certainly evoked a Sydney of the past and a main character I found I kept liking more as I read on. "

    " A breathtaking story of love. And of strength. And of prejudice. And of war. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan | 5/27/2013

    " Not great literature, but a good story and quite engaging. A different slant on the WWII stuff I've been reading a lot of. Stretching the verisimilitude here but still exciting reading. "

    " I recommend reading this book to my friends - my book cover was different then what shows on this website - but anytime I can read from a author who is from another continent I am also learning their language and their history! "

    " Interesting take on WWII in Sydney Australia in 1942. Pearl plays saxophone in a an all girl band and also plays underground gigs with her brother who to plays the sax. Pearl meets a black GI and falls in love. I think you kind of have to expand your imagination but all in all a good read. "
