Cry Quietly

Mike Musgrave

An enthralling tale set in wartime Australia, Cry Quietly is a story that will keep you turning the pages until the very end. A tale of romance, fulfilment, violence and dark secrets, we follow Rita, a member of the WRAAF who falls for Tom, the man she ultimately marries.


But married life isn't the happy time Rita was hoping for, and it soon becomes more about struggles than a happy partnership. With five children to bring up, post-war life has more downs than ups as she fights to keep her family fed, protected and out of danger.


Errol is the youngest child; a sickly boy from birth. And as he grows up, trouble has a way of finding him, whether he goes looking for it or not. Will his determined attitude and positive outlook on life keep him on the right path or will the daily trials become too much to bear?
