A Bridge To Wiseman's Cove

Picture of A Bridge To Wiseman's Cove
Carl was afraid to breathe. The weight of the bird and its piercing gaze was enough to freeze him here forever. 'Now Carl set it free.' Carl Matt hasn't got much. There's just his younger brother Harley and the old red barge to Wiseman's Cove. And nothing's going to take those away from him. He's an awkward, lumpy fifteen-year-old. Not the hero type. Yet Carl has become one of the most memorable characters in Australian literature. 'This is a moving story about an unlikely hero who readers will care about and remember.' Bookphile 'Carl's unfolding is a delicate, halting process, wherein every flicker of hope can produce a rush of warmth in the reader's heart.' Reading Time
