Her mother ran away so her father has brought Matilda and her sisters and brothers from Australia to live with his family in Ireland." "At first it's lovely in her new home, but it's not long before everything goes wrong and Matilda and the others are on the move again. It seems that her heart's desires - her mother, a home and a hug - are just too much to expect, and Matilda learns to make the best of things." "Despite her father's increasing craziness, and despite the half-understood secrets that haunt her, Matilda finds trust and affection in the most unexpected places. By the time she is sixteen Matilda realizes that the only way to get a life is to claim it, and that means taking on her over-powering father - not just for herself, but for her whole family."--BOOK JACKET." ;
