Product Description


Mitji was a freak. With her white skin, thin nose and red hair, she was completely different from the rest of her Aboriginal tribe. As she neared womanhood, her oddness separated her more and more from her tribe and made her an outcast...Then, in a desperate bid to find her own people, she stumbled upon a white man and followed him to his home. Now Mitji is Meg and, with a new identity, she begins a journey of self-discovery, searching for her true past. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really enjoyed this book 21 Mar 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I used to read Madeleine Brent years ago and recently found this one that I haven't read. All Madeleine Brent's stories follow similar patterns but it was a really good read and I devoured it almost in one sitting.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice one for the plane journey 25 May 2011
Well, great literature it ain't ! But as a "good read" for the train / plane journey it will do nicely. Take it on holiday. It is predictable and the ending is contrived to make use of the heroine's fearsome talents, the result of her equally contrived childhood. But that's the genre. On the plus side, it's a page-turner, all the characters are individual even if not fully human - only the villain really lacked depth - and he had plenty of significant menace. The plot had some nice twists and turns and the hero wasn't all conquering. I enjoyed it and read it almost at one gulp and then asked myself: Shouldn't I have been reading something more worth while ? Probably not: it was a good yarn to relax over.


There was one loose end: I really did want to know if the Aborigine Tribe that Meg had been raised by really were wiped out by a measles epidemic. I think she should have tried to find out.
