Maraglindi: Guardian Spirit by Bob Rich
Maraglindi: Guardian Spirit
We are very excited to announce the publication of our latest book! A year in the making, this beautiful historical fiction novel by Bob Rich is now being republished.
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.
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.
