Reviews

'Simply a joy to read.' Courier-Mail 'Toni Jordan has written a beautiful novel which captures the loves and fears of an ordinary Australian family through hard times and better times. It reminded me of Elizabeth Stead's books.' Australian Bookseller & Publisher 'What makes a book good is its heart - and the heart of this book is warm but real. Its particular subjects are war, abortion, religious and class difference, social conscience and social mobility, but it is also a universal tale about how love (marital, romantic, sibling, parental, and so on) forms the glue that keeps us going.' Whispering Gums 'Jordan is clear that what binds us to one another and to a meaningful life is simply valuing the life you have been given and the family that is yours and yours alone. Reading Nine Days, you will laugh, even cry, but you will be in no doubt that Toni Jordan uses the modern novel to reflect those tensions that exist for many of us between duty and desire.' Australian Book Review 'A brilliant piece of writing...compelling, engaging and will bring tears to the eyes...' Sunday Star Times 'Toni Jordan's characters beautifully frame a story of compassion, fun and poignancy.' Launceston Examiner 'Every now and then a book comes along that's brilliantly conceived and tightly written, yet there's nothing flashy about it. I think Australian writer Toni Jordan's third novel, Nine Days, falls into the rare and wonderful category...Each of the nine voices is distinct and brimming with personality and by the finish every part of the jigsaw fits perfectly and you see the whole sweep of this romantic, thoughtful, heartbreaking story...Jordan's previous novels, Addition and Fall Girl, were smart sassy and humourous. Nine Days has taken her to another level. More serious than her previous work but with the same astute observations, brightness and wit, its a sensitive and beautiful novel, a slice of Australia's working-class history, that is a joy to read.' NZ Herald on Sunday 'This novel is a triumph. Another signal career in Australian fiction is well under way.' Australian 'Jordan's triumph is in the structure and scope of this novel set in working-class Richmond, starting and ending indeed in 1939 but spreading out an ensuing 70 years to solve a mystery and build a love story.' Adelaide Advertiser 'The suspense is frequently nail-biting, and there's a strong undertow of unspecified doom, but the book is far from gloomy because Jordan has a fine line in wit too, not to mention the natural storyteller's ability to keep us guessing about where it's all going...beautifully constructed...' Daily Mail UK '[Toni] Jordan (Addition) renders this extended family's interwoven story in gorgeous layers of warmth, understanding, and casual cruelties, interspersed throughout with good humor and perfectly rendered dialogue.' Shelf Awareness for Readers 'Read and enjoy this novel not just for its perfect historical snapshots, but for its engaging tale of family and how love binds us all together. This is a poignant, beautiful work and is most highly recommended.' Historical Novels Review 'A witty and wise family saga...gorgeously layered...a small treasure.' -- Kirkus Reviews 'Jordan elegantly captures the hopes and despairs of three generations of a troubled family, offering a diverting read that will appeal to fans of sophisticated historical fiction and book club members.' Library Journal
