The Floating Garden is a beautiful novel evoking the hardships and the glories of 1920s Sydney.         It tells the little-known story of those who faced upheaval because of the famous bridge.     Peopled by misfits, bohemians, charlatans, and fly-by-nighters, The Floating Garden is about shedding secrets, seizing second chances, and finding love among the ruins.
