    Disclaimer this is not my own review, but a review from Elli, who doesn t have a Goodreads account Goldie Alexander s novel is set in a rather overlooked period in Australian history the post war era of the 1950s and the outset of the Cold War Early in the story, we learn that the stranger of the title could be Eva Petrov, the victim of what came to be known as the Petrov Affair Teenage readers who are unfamiliar with this twentieth century event will discover political values and religious issues that are very different from today s ideals and philosophies Teenagers themselves, however, have not changed Heroine, Ruth is perplexed and challenged by the same sort of issues as her contemporary readers, the opposite sex being the obvious one Ruth is a Jewish girl but her love interest, Patrick, is a from a prominent Melbourne Catholic family It s like Romeo and Juliet all over again without the bloodshed and the poison, but with plenty of drama Elli HousdenEnglish Teacher and Reviewer

    The premise is good but this book is an example of the dangers of self publishing The writing was jolty, some scenes were unnecessarily lengthy while others needed to be explored further A good editor and publisher would have found these errors prior to publication.I couldn t finish the book which is a shame because the concept was excellent but alas, the execution poor.

    An enjoyable YA read that has a bit of mystery, history and romance in the plot.
