    Historical Fiction Australian

    1918, London waitress Fleur Richards can't wait for her husband, Hugh, to return from the Great War and move to Australia with him. As the crowds are cheering for the King, celebrating the end of WW I she is swept up in the excitement and can’t wait to hear from Hugh. But, instead receives word of his death, not by telegram, a solicitor contacts her from Archer Waterston and informs her of her husband’s demise. Hugh has left her an inheritance; she doesn’t believe he's dead and she decides to travel to Australia to find out what’s really going on? 1919, Fleur arrives in Sydney, she discovers she is the rightful owner of farmland in Mogo Creek and a boarded up derelict taxidermy shop called the curio shop of wonders. All left to her by her deceased husband Hugh, she’s shocked and why didn’t Hugh tell her he was wealthy? I must admit I find the whole subject of taxidermy rather creepy; I had doubts about if I would I like this story and I’m happy that I continued reading the dual timeline book and it’s an interesting historical fiction tale. 1853, Della Atterton lives on a farm in Mogo Creek near the Hawkesbury river, she works as a taxidermist and her father taught her this very unique trade. Her parent’s tragically passed away, her Aunt Cordelia runs her father’s shop in Sydney and she assumes everything is fine? But when Captain Stefan von Richter arrives to inform her of what’s going on and she discovers her Aunt is up to no good. Not only is her Aunt selling special tonics to the ladies of Sydney, odd feathered creations, she’s selling traditional aboriginal items and where did she get them from? Both Fleur and Della’s stories are connected, as you read The Woman in the Green Dress, the story keeps you guessing, as it unfolds and it all makes perfect sense at the end. It’s a story about greed, deceit, intrigue, murder, secrets, a very complicated family tree, stuffed animals, stolen aboriginal treasure and a cursed Australian gem stone. I enjoyed the book, four stars from me and Tea Coopers books are never boring.
