AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Lauren is a beautiful Indigenous Australian fashion designer whose label, Jindalee Lady, is an elite fashion house. Her philandering husband David neglects her constantly, however. His constant absence mixed with suave flirtation trap her in their one-sided, painful relationship until she walks in on him cheating with one of her star models. Disgusted, disillusioned and angry, she flies into the arms of a handsome, steadfast lover of Aboriginal decent and decides to start her life anew. As she manages her business with a new lover beside her, Lauren finds herself questioning whether she can find happiness in her new life without David or whether she might be lured again to his destructive charms? With numerous references to Lauren's ancestral heritage, Jindalee Lady paints a story of Aboriginal men and women fighting for respect and success in modern society.
