SECRETS FROM THE DUST
by George Hamilton
Rating: 4.5 Stars
Genre: Literary/Historical Drama
Snatched from her family during the 1960s, Margaret, a headstrong Aboriginal girl, is fostered by the McDonalds, in the Australian outback, under the government sponsored assimilation policies. She stubbornly fights to maintain her culture until she can escape or her real parents find her. But soon she discovers that she is growing to like many of the customs and material possessions of her captors, throwing her into an identity crisis, which rips another fault line through her world.
By the time she grows into a beautiful young woman, she has already suffered the disappointments of unrequited love and a forbidden desire. Encouraged to hide behind the identity of a Southern European, the highly charged political environment of the time, and her love for a political activist, forces her to confront her true identity.
Here’s what the reviewers have to say:
If you read no other book this year, make sure to read Secrets From the Dust. It will change you and make you conscious against suppressing the spirit of life and to be in touch with your true self.
I recommend this book for all readers who like to absorb history in a more human way than with textbooks.
The book is extremely well written, with wonderful characters, description and dialogue – it certainly is a book you can pick up and get totally lost in. Highly recommended.
George Hamilton meticulously researched SECRETS FROM THE DUST and the setting of the 1950s and 60s just pops off the page. This thought-provoking, lyrical novel deserves an audience. Read it and urge your friends to also.
The story was fascinating, the characters and their environment were so well described you could see them. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
