Betrayed. Abandoned. SPLINTERED

It is the 1960s, and teenage Lisa O'Connor is growing up in a brutal family in the western suburbs of Sydney, Australia. Abused and forsaken by those she should have been able to trust the most, Lisa is sent away to the notorious Parramatta Girls Home for 'reform'. While captive there, she encounters the depths of human depravity and sinks even further into despair.

Luckily for Lisa, she is rescued from this abhorrent life by her childless aunt, who takes her to live at a remote sheep station in outback New South Wales. Lisa finds herself in a world that is different to anything she has known before, and she falls in love with the homestead, Woori, the harsh outback landscape and the Aboriginal culture. With the help of her aunt and uncle, two female Aboriginal elders and Billy, a very special young Aboriginal man, Lisa's splintered heart and broken spirit begin to mend.

Splintered Heart, book one in the Red Dust series, takes readers on an emotional journey into the depths of human darkness, and out again, into the light of the human spirit. Lisa's determination and desire to overcome her horrific beginnings tell a saga unlike any other. Both horrifying and inspiring, this is a story that can't be put down.
