Gilgamesh by Joan London
Edith is seventeen and pregnant. She is living on a hardscrabble farm with her older sister and mentally ill mother in western Australia. Edith decides to find the baby's father, but all she knows is that he is probably somewhere in Armenia. World War II is about to begin.
This character-driven novel packs a lot of punch into 256 pages. Very satisfying.
