A Prayer For Blue Delaney by Kirsty Murray

a prayer for blue delaney murray kirsty

Starting in the 1840s and ending in present-day Australia, the Children of the Wind quartet tells the stories of four courageous young people, Bridie, Billy, Colm and Maeve, born fifty years apart. This much acclaimed series is an outstanding example of historical fiction — exploring an era with accuracy yet with a story which young people will relate to their own lives. Her works are studied at La Trobe University in the children's literature genre. This action packed story, set in the 1950s, continues the richly detailed historical quartet that began with Bridie's Fire and Becoming Billy Dare. I honestly could not stop reading and quickly devoured the preceding books in the quartet, too.

Kirsty Murray is an author of nineteen books for young people. She creates boys so believable you want to save them. I've not read the other books in the Children of the Wind series, of which A Prayer for Blue Delaney is the third title, but this didn't matter, as the book is self-contained, even though characters from the other books play major roles. Many suffered unspeakable hardship and cruelty. This writer is able to paint vividly the settings and visual landscapes, and the emotional experiences of the characters, particularly Colm.

When Bill's life is at risk, it's up to Colm to go in search of the mysterious Blue Delaney and lay to rest the ghosts that haunt them both. Her tribe of grown up-kids live all around the world so she travels a lot to catch up with them. The history included in this book is well-researched and woven into the story beautifully, as are the descriptions of Outback Australia, but acted more as a taster or jumping-off point for 1950s Australian history.
