Lane, Karly,

Bridie's choice / Karly Lane. - Crows Nest, N.S.W. : Allen & Unwin, 2012. - 314 p. ; 24 cm.

Bridie Farrell and Shaun Broderick come from opposite sides of the tracks. But unlike Bridie's family, who are perennial strugglers, the Brodericks are the wealthy owners of one of the most prestigious properties in the district. Still, all is not well in either family. Bridie's father is doing time in prison and her younger brother has fallen in with the wrong crowd. Meanwhile, Shaun's dictatorial father rules the family with an iron rod and never lets Shaun make his own decisions. The Brodericks are dismayed when Shaun falls in love with 'that Farrell girl' and breaks up with 'a very suitable young woman'. And they don't just make their feelings clear to Shaun but to Bridie as well. This is just one of many troubles Bridie faces, and eventually she has to make a choice about what's important in life.
