BOOK REVIEW Maria Stefanidis' book 'The Sunny side of the street' is a delightful and engaging read set in 1950's Australia tracing the tales of a Cyprian migrant, Harry Demitriou and his family. Stefanidis sets up the characters with care and humour, and over the course of the book follows not only Harry's course of life, but that of his wife, the friendly neighbour Ruth, and the family and communities in Australia and back in Cyprus. Stefanidis has written an engaging drama that builds and she cleverly weaves character secrets and life events making the book irresistible and unable to be put down! Stefanidis has brought to life the migrant experience and does it very skilfully by spanning generations and between man and woman. This book will appeal to lovers of romantic drama fiction set in a historical period and where there is no sense of right or wrong but people making lives from the cards that they have been dealt. I loved this book and highly recommend it!
