Guardian Spirit

1850, a small town in Australia: Glindi, an Aboriginal woman, gives birth to a daughter, the result of a rape by a white man. She names her Maraglindi, meaning "Glindi's sorrow," but the girl is a joy to all those around her. She has the gift of love.

During her short life, she encounters everything intolerant, cruel Victorian society can throw at people it considers to be animals. She surmounts the savagery of the white invader by conquering hate with love.

Maraglindi: child of the land, fruit of an evil deed, and instrument of love.

Mary Tod

Maraglindi - the title of this new novel from author Bob Rich - embodies a promise to readers, the promise of a story that is both magical and transformative. Expect to be mesmerized by the main character, Maraglindi, and the way her life unfolds in Victorian Australia. Expect to be outraged at the way whites treated the aboriginal people. Expect to be touched by the power of love and hope. Highly recommended.

M. K. Tod is the author of many works of historical fiction, the latest being Paris In Ruins.
