That uestions what it is to remember and how tempting it can be to forget‘Kate Mildenhall’s impressive debut novel takes an historical case and re imagines it with such sensitivity and insight that we feel this must be how it truly happened’ Emily Bit. 35 Skylarking is a work of fiction based on the true story of Harriet Parker her best friend Kate Gibson the hut of Donald McPhail at Cape St George in 1887 I came upon this story while camping with dear friends at Greenpatch camping ground in Jervis Bay New South Wales This is an edited version of the Author s Note at the end of the book and it does show the bare bones of the story she had to work with For her debut she has created a believable story that I think would suit young people as well as an adult audienceKate and Harriet I always think of them in that order because the story is told from Kate s point of view Kate is the instigator of all the adventure the fun the picnics the big picture thinking She s the one who reads all the books Harriet receives as gifts Harriet can t be bothered They live with their families and a handful of others at Cape St George where Kate s father is the head lighthouse keeper There are other children and there have been The various families have been touched by tragedy but it s their parents who suffer most not the girls And we don t really share that suffering because we are in Kate s head Most of their time is spent romping around the island playing on the beach collecting mussels in rock pools and generally dividing their time between household chores and skylarking As they hit their mid teens Harriet matures uickly and finally Kate begins to catch up I knew it was a line I was crossing from childhood to adulthood and I wanted to stay and I wanted to go and I wanted to be able to be in both places forever That one sentence pretty much sums up Kate s attitude to life She wants to live on the cape forever but she wants to see Melbourne and travel the world She doesn t really want to be her motherAnd she feels very much second to Harriet in looks The girls are being fitted for new dresses and I imagine many women have felt this way about themselves Hers was a smooth silhouette tucked in at the waist and curving into the proper shape at the chest whereas Mother always told me that I looked as if I d been wrestled into each dress she made me But she knows that best friends or not they are different creatures I wanted to dive deep down skimming the sandy bottom of the ocean with my bare skin I wanted to glide through fingers of pink weed and velvety fronds of green and come face to face with a mullet or a gummy shark slide up to the rubbery flank of a great whale and feel her song vibrate through my cheek to the very centre of my brain and understand what she told me These were the peculiar thoughts I never shared with Harriet or anyone else Sometimes I felt as if there were something amiss in my make up That all the pieces had not been put together right You couldn t see it from the outside no it was my inside that was awry It made me recoil at the thought of marriage made me dream of sailing away of living beneath the ocean Sometimes on the rocks you could get within a foot of a dead seal if the wind was blowing away from you The rocks would obscure it and you could be right over it about to step into the putrefying flesh before you inhaled the unholy whiff of it and realised you d been breathing it in all along That s all that was needed for me to be found out a wind change and someone would sense what was rotten inside of me The girls are fascinated by a handsome mysterious fisherman McPhail and like to wander around near his cottage kind of tempting fate They have no idea what they might be tempting but they love the thrill Kate is jealous that McPhail and Harriet seem to be a bit attracted to each other and when Harriet returns from a long visit to Melbourne sent away to avoid McPhail they can t help going back thereThe event at the end is the real one on which the book is based and it is a shockerThere are many homespun scenes of baking ginger cakes and puddings and bread and heating up the washing water
