What really happened in Australia during WWII?
‘Enemies within these Shores’ is a page-turning historical saga that sweeps from the sugar towns of tropical
north Queensland to the internment camps of South Australia. Inspired by the true story of the author’s
Italian father-in-law, the novel brings to life the tumultuous years of WWII, political opportunism, racism,
retribution, and ultimately survival.
“I thoroughly enjoyed reading ‘Enemies within these Shores’. The book held my attention all the way through,
I engaged with the characters (real and fictional), and I learned new things about Australia’s history. It fulfills
all my expectations of historical fiction.” Jen W. at Goodreads.
“Debbie Terranova’s third novel, ‘Enemies within these Shores’, is yet another gripping read. Her writing
shows both attention to historical detail and perceptive use of colourful metaphors. Completely engrossing.”
