AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Still dealing with the aftermath of her mother's death and her experiences of war-torn London, the protagonist discovers her own adoption certificate amongst her mother's papers. She travels to Australia to find out the truth about her birth.

Notes

  • Dedication: For Daireen Eva Liefchild McKinley and all the women who raise other people's children and love them as their own. They truly understand the meaning of motherhood.
  • Author's note: There is a small seaside town in the far north of Queensland called Trinity Beach. The residents may not recognise it as it is presented in Undercurrents for I have taken certain liberties with its geography and character and for that I apologise. The Trinity of Undercurrents is an amalgum of Bluff Beach in Devonport, Tasmania, and Palm Cove and Trinity in Queensland - my idea of heaven on earth - for each represents a special time in my life.
  • Epigraph: The cruellest lies are often told in silence, Robert Louis Stevenson 1850-1894.
  • Other formats: Also sound recording, large print.
