AbstractHistoryArchive Description

' Brisbane, 1971. Susan Kinnane, precocious daughter of conservative parents, spurns the attention of fellow university student Mike Riley in favour of a passionate romance with activist Terry Stoddard. When the South African Rugby team tours, Terry, Susan and Mike join the anti-apartheid demonstrations outside the Springbok's hotel near the iconic Tower Mill. Late in the night, the riot police charge, and the terrified students are hunted into the darkened park below.

What happens next changes each of their lives forever. Eight months on, Susan gives birth to a son, Tom, whose destiny is shaped by a man who is not his father, and by the events of that shocking night. As a lawyer working in London decades later, Tom must return to make peace with the past. The Tower Mill is a gripping family drama that plays out against a turbulent and controversial political era' Source: www.uqp.com.au/ (Sighted 02/07/2012).

    For Betty Moloney,
    who might have written novels,
    but chose other ways to let us know she was here.
