The tiniest things - a coin, a pendant, a photograph, a lie - can make or ruin lives.

It is 1939. Deep in the working-class Melbourne suburb of Richmond Kip Westaway, failed scholar and stablehand, is about to live through the most important day in his young life as Australia hovers unknowingly on the brink of war. What happens that day is the catalyst for momentous events strung across eight more moments in time; love and deception, near-misses and misunderstandings, all centred around the terrible thing that happens to a young girl and the repercussions it will have on the lives of her family, even those not yet born..

MEDIA REVIEWS
The suspense is frequently nail-biting... beautifully constructed * Daily Mail *
Neither previous work could have prepared us for the ambition and achievement of Jordan's brilliant third novel, NINE DAYS . . . a triumph. Another signal career in Australian fiction is well under way. * Australian *
Rare and wonderful ... Each of the nine voices is distinct and brimming with personality and by the finish every part of the jigsaw fits perfectly and you see the whole sweep of this romantic, thoughtful, heartbreaking story * New Zealand Herald on Sunday *
Jordan is clear that what binds us to one another and to a meaningful life is simply valuing the life you have been given and the family that is yours and yours alone. Reading NINE DAYS, you will laugh, even cry, but you will be in no doubt that Toni Jordan uses the modern novel to reflect those tensions that exist for many of us between duty and desire. * Australian Book Review *
A brilliant piece of writing...compelling, engaging and will bring tears to the eyes * Sunday Star Times (New Zealand) *
Intelligent romantic comedy at its deft best * The Age on FALL GIRL *

For ADDITION:

'Bringing a quirky humour and a sympathetic view of diversity to her story, the author sustains the momentum to the end of this engaging romantic comedy'

* The Times *
An unusual and intriguing novel, written with a very light touch * Daily Mail *
Brimming with sarcastic humour * Guardian *
Toni Jordan's debut is mature, witty and entertaining * Irish Times *
It's laugh-out-loud funny and painfully sad in turns . . . It is a quick read and extremely hard to put down, as you get addicted to Grace's addictive personality * Amanda Ross, Richard & Judy Summer Read *
