    My Last Lament by James William Brown takes us back to World War Two and the years following, and Greece. I hadnt ever read anything about Greece during WWII, and the subject matter here was the main reason I requested this book on NetGalley (not to mention that cover has a haunting quality to it)/5. Read ebooks by E J Banfield. On the 5th of June, , the small steamer Innisfail was passing between Dunk Island and the coast of northern Queensland, when the captain noticed a figure waving from the island beach. Interpreting the signal as a greeting, he merely waved a response. Then, as the vessel proceeded, the figure on the beach collapsed.

    I received a copy of the book from the publisher in exchange for a honest review. All opinions are my own and I was not compensated for this review. My Review: For some reason, when I first saw the cover and read the synopsis of The Last Leaves Falling, it reminded me of one of my childhood favorite books, Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes. Geography. Bedarra Island is approximately seven kilometres off the tropical North Queensland coast, midway between Townsville and Cairns, the nearest coastal town being Mission is in the middle of Family Islands National granite island was part of the mainland before the last sea level rise began 8, years ago.. The island consists of pristine coral sandy Coordinates: 18°00′14″S °08′56″E .

    The closest parallel in the world today is the I Ching - the book of changes. The book of leaves is said to be from “an ancient civilization”, older than recorded history, and the I Ching, over three thousand years old but revealed at around that.   Book of leaves definition is A book which contain all heavenly knowledge.. The closest thing to this is the book of solomon. since we already know that Solomon is the most badass, smartest, richest, magical and also the king of all realms.. Now.
