    One thought on “Staircase to the Moon”

    1. Copy provided by NetGalleyWhen I saw that this book was set in Australia, I glommed onto it. And it turned out that the strongest element of this romantic novel is the setting: it is clear that Haran knows Australia, and her love for it imbues the descriptions of scenery, weather, and the sensory experience of the inland stations, where most of this story is set.Emily is in her twenties, confined at home by her dad and three brothers, not allowed to do anything but her part in the family busines [...]

    2. Staircase to the Moon by Elizabeth Haran is the first book that I have read by this author, but it definitely won't be the last.The story begins when we hear about the life of young seamstress, Emily. She lives and works with her father, 3 brothers and Uncle in the family tailor shop. Unfortunately those men, with the exception of her uncle, are all overprotective of her. They don't even let her go to the shop on her own. She feels suffocated, but the last straw is when her brother arranges, wit [...]

    3. I didn't know what to expect with Staircase to the Moon, as the author was new to me. I was intrigued by the summary and that it takes place in Australia pre-WW1. As I started the book, I was drawn rapidly into the story and life of Emily. What a childhood she must have had with her three brothers and father watching every move she made. I laughed at the part where she shares the moment her brothers "discover" that she's a developing girl. How simply embarrassing it would have been for everyone! [...]

    4. outback life and love in the early 1900'sOnce again, reading Elizabeth Haran's works, I feel like I've entered an Australian travelogue mixed in with Mary Grant Bruce's 'Billabong' series for adults.The story is interesting, the Australian 'cinderella' seamstress being dictated to by the men of her family (successful tailors) out of a misguided love, organizing her life and her marriage to their advantage. All in an unknowing misogynistic way. Emily Scott rebels and runs off from Perth to the fa [...]

    5. Australia - 1913Emily Scott, age 22, works in her father’s tailor shop in Perth. Stifled by her strict father and 3 overbearing brothers, Emily feels positively suffocated. Her mother passed away when Emily was just 8, leaving her surrounded by all males. Her father’s brother, Freddy, came to live with them after her mother passed. He is a fun man who manages to keep the house going and everyone well fed.Her father and brothers think she should marry and introduce her to a repulsive older ma [...]

    6. I got an early release of this book from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review. Although I gave it three stars, it is probably more like 3.5, but definitely not 4. The novel is set in the Australian Outback just prior and during World War I. Emily has grown up with her father, uncle and three brothers in a very restrictive environment in her father’s tailor shop. When her father arranges a marriage for her with a much older man, she escapes her home to take a seamstress job in the Austra [...]

    7. STAIRCASE TO THE MOON is one of those books that had the potential to be completely amazing--one of those historicals' you think about long after they're over, but it just missed the mark. The book is set in the Australian Outback just prior and during World War I. Because her mother died when she was young, Emily grew up with her father, uncle and three brothers in a very strict and overprotective environment in her father’s tailor shop. When her brothers and father arrange a marriage for her [...]

    8. This book was provided by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.A book set in Australia, during World War I (a period I unfortunately don't read enough about), on a ranch? Sign me up! I"m so glad I requested this. I enjoyed this book quite a bit. I liked the character Emily, who was trapped in an oppressive home life with overprotective brothers and father. She made her own way through her determination, and that determination, resourcefulness, and hard work helped her throughout the rest o [...]

    9. I received a copy of this book through Netgalley.This is the first time I have read anything by Elizabeth Haran, I wanted to read this story because the setting was in Australia and it is hard to find much reading of this area. This book did not disappoint.Emily is the only daughter in a house of men, her mother had died when she was young and her uncle came and lived with the family. The family sews men's wear and arrange a marriage for Emily with an older man who gropes her the first chance he [...]

    10. Staircase to the Moon written by Elizabeth Haran ⭐️⭐️⭐️In 1913 pre World War 1, Emily Scott is fed up with being under the dictatorship of her father and brothers. Emily leaves her home in Perth to assume a position as a seamstress at a remote station in North-Western Australia. She seeks a new life with more freedom.Emily is employed by a rich family with three daughters and a son. She is finding her life in this new home is wonderful. War breaks out the following year.This book dea [...]

    11. Though woven with an intriguing storyline, I did not really enjoy this book. While I do not have vast amounts of knowledge about Australian history, I do know that several historical aspects of this book--grammatical usage, character appearances, and moral obligations--were incorrect. There are a few four-letter-words scattered here and there, but the writing is engaging.I did not feel a particular attachment to the characters, yet I still enjoyed reading about their trials and triumphs. Though [...]

    12. Copy provided by Netgallery. This is an excellent book. The characters are vibrant and believable. It also had a happy ending for all involved, which is very satisfying. I loved the author's description of life on an outback station in the early 20th century. It illustrates the vitality of the terrain and also the hardiness required from the people who inhabited it.

    13. Well written and, for me, educational historical novel about a place and time I'm interested in. Emily is a terrific character- well rounded and sympathetic. i found myself rooting for her. You'll like this if you are interested in far away times and places. Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC. I'm definitely looking forward to more from Haran= two thumbs up!

    14. This book needs to remove all of the “tell” and add some “show”. When the first chapter turned out to be the author telling the lead character’s entire life story, I knew I was in some trouble.There’s better Australian fiction about the World Wars out there.Review copy.

    15. Good read I'm glad I read this book. Good story line and I found the people in the story very believable and kept my interest . However the story telling was quite predictable ere were many typo s that weren't caughtat doesn't affect the readability of course.

    16. This book was provided by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.This book was sweetly amazing. This was an unknown author to me, but some of my favorite authors are Aussies and I love historical romances, so I was excited to give this one a try. This was my first historical fiction book based in Australia, and I found myself researching the country, station life around WWI, and learning much about immigrants in Australia during that time frame. With three major settings, Emily's story begin [...]

    17. REVIEW:The Staircase to the Moon was a wonderful period piece not just about Australian history, but about a beautiful telling of the struggle of young women at the end of the Victorian age and through WWI. This was a time when their role was being re-defined and independence and self-reliance were being forced on many as men went off to fight "The Great War to end all Wars". What it showed me was that the struggles and stories that I have been well aware of about women in the U.S. are far more [...]

    18. The cover and the setting of the Australia Outback in the early 1900's greatly appealed to me. Emily is the protagonist, a young woman who is overly oppressed by the overbearing males in her family. She longs to escape to somewhere she can be free. Instead, her family attempts to marry her off to a man she finds abhorant. What does she do? Well she escapes to a remote area of Australia and begins work as a seamstress for a lady and three daughters in a large manor house. As her time with the fam [...]

    20. This book was sent to me from Netgalley. It was an interesting read but at times it seemed to wordy. I give the main character Emily props for knowing what she wants with her life and this it isn't with her family. She did what she had to do to escape from her controlling father and brothers. The last straw for her to flee was the arranged marriage her brothers deemed a good match. The boat ride to the Kimberly region was boring for me to read, even though it explains why Mr. Hopsing is along on [...]

    21. I received a free copy from NetGalley for an honest review. Although the storyline was interesting with all the trials and tribulations of Emily's life, the later chapters seemed disjointed. The love story between Liam and Emily seemed so rushed towards the end and unrealistic. It would have made more sense to develop the relationship between Liam and Emily and not create it in the last few chapters.

    22. An interesting glimpse into what life was like in rural western Australia during World War 1. Review based on ARC from NetGalley.
