'Victoria Haskins' fine book fills a much-needed gap in our understanding of Australia's history. For too long we have heard the stories of one side or the other; colonised or colonisers. One Bright Spot delicately rounds out our understanding by revealing to us the complexity of the relationships that emerged through the cross-cultural interactions of the early part of the twentieth century. The evocative prose resists sentimentality and romanticisation and delights the reader with an exquisite novel-like writing style. At the end of it one is struck by Haskins' rare combination of scholarly rigor, passion and a personal connection, which she both embraces and critiques'. Professor Lynette Russell, Monash University
