HaywireHaywire - author Claire Saxby

  • Haywire, my first novel, has hit the bookshops!

Haywire is based on the true story of the Dunera voyage and the internees who travelled to Australia from London to Hay, NSW, in 1940.

Life in Germany in 1939 is not safe for 13 year old Max Gruber so he is sent to his Uncle Ferdy in London, only to find himself sent to Australia aboard the famous ship Dunera. Arriving in rural Hay, and housed in an internment camp, he meets local boy Tom. The two new friends become allies, as their lives are affected by the growing conflict in far away Europe.
