Publisher's Summary

A novel of love, war and kindness, inspired by a true story of medical genius and betrayal.  

Sydney, 1948. Brilliant German surgeon, Hugo Winter, is dead, and his protégé, Lucy Brynne, is tasked with sorting his papers. Among them, Lucy finds glimpses of Hugo’s past that paint a disturbing picture of war and prejudice - a portrait of Australia she can barely recognise.  

That same week, an intriguing patient comes into her care on the orthopaedic ward at Sydney Hospital: one Mr Jim Cleary. Lucy’s experience as an army physiotherapist, as well as her own very personal knowledge of pain, tell her there’s more to this man’s fractured leg than meets the eye.  

As she pieces together who Jim Cleary really is and the truth behind his injury, she not only falls for his laconic charm, but discovers the rival surgeon who relentlessly persecuted Hugo - a man who will shatter Jim’s life completely now, unless Lucy can stop him.  

Inspired by a true story of medical genius and betrayal, Walking is a crisply told tale of bigotry and obsession, love and devastation, one that charts the path of a young woman finding her feet in the world and the transformative power of kindness that drives her own ambition.

Narration lets good story down

The story is an interesting and gentle tale of prejudice and love in Australia and the time of WW2.
However, the female narrator Lucy Ansell tries too hard to emulate the accents of men and women from Russia ( like a joke accent) to Ireland (not so bad) and Australia. At one point to differentiate between some Australian male characters she sounds as if she is holding her nose. She speaks well when she is straight talking so its just not necessary. Off pointing.

Again Kim Kelly has created wonderful characters and highlighted a piece of Australian history that is fascinating. Narration is great and really enlivened the characters.

Will have to read instead

I bought this without checking and gave up quickly. The female narration was so annoying that I was unable to concentrate on the story

A shame, as other Kim Kelly books narrated by Caroline Lee have been a delight

I am sure, when I read it, I will love it and shall be sure to pay more attention to the sample narration before I make future purchases
