5.0 out of 5 stars This book was very hard to put down, 20 April 2011
This review is from: SECRETS FROM THE DUST (Kindle Edition)
Between 1910 and 1969 Australia had what was known as The Stolen Generation. Children of mixed heritage of the Aboriginal tribes were forcefully abducted from their parents. Taken to orphanages or church missions and made wards of the state, they were adopted out and their families never saw them again. Secrets From The Dust is the story of one girl and her life, and although a fictional story, depicts that time. Renamed Margaret, she was better known to the tribe as Snake -Woman- Child. Although her father located her, he was unable to get her back away from the mission. Margaret fared better than most as the family that adopted her believed in education. She continued her education in Sydney where she became a nurse. Through the years she had to come to terms of her true identity and culture in which she was reared.

This book was very hard to put down. This is a fictional account but clearly demonstrates the plight of the aboriginals and how they were treated. This book is very well written. It was easy to connect with the characters.
