The Moving Sequel to Follow the Rabbit-Proof Fence.

The Wintamarra Tree is a permanent reminder of the beginning of my life.  It's always been there waiting for me to come and reconnect to my birthplace.

Living in a workers’ camp with her family on Balfour Downs Station, three-year-old Doris’s life is forever changed when she is removed by the authorities to Moore River Native Settlement.

Leaving behind the harsh realities of life as an institutional orphan, Doris goes to Perth to train as a nurse’s aid.  But the racist culture of her upbringing leaves an indelible mistrust of her own people.  This is the obstacle she has to overcome when, as a wife and mother, she makes the courageous but difficult choice to find her mother and father, and to begin the journey to reclaim her Mardu heritage.
