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. Even beyond death, she spreads compassion, then she returns a second time, with an ending that will touch your heart.
Maraglindi: child of the land, fruit of an evil deed, and instrument of love.




A Word from the Author

Author Bob rich picture
I’ve always had a strong hate of bullying, discrimination, prejudice. For many years, I worked as a counselor at an (Australian) Aboriginal health service, and got to love these people. Soon, they accepted me, with all the young people calling me “Uncle Bob.”
Perhaps as a result, Maraglindi, a young girl, introduced herself to me. Only, she was born in 1850, and died in 1864. I faithfully recorded her life, which I found inspirational. This person has been my teacher, many a time.
In the Victorian years, white people looked on Aborigines as animals, and treated them worse than they treated animals. Maraglindi’s reaction was to repay hate and disdain with unconditional love.
At one stage, she caught the flu, and coming from a people with no defense against the introduced disease, she died, then returned to life. When she told me of this episode, I found out her true nature. She was an apprentice guardian angel, here on earth to guide us. Only, she’d never been a human, so needed to learn about us by living a series of lives. Maraglindi was the first.
She died in horrific circumstances, then turned tables on her murderer, leading him toward the Light.
I submitted the manuscript to a publisher I respect, but she turned it down, because the ending was so terrible. I agreed with her, and put the book away for some years.
Then I needed a break from other writing, and had another look. I continued the story by tracing the lives of people she’d influenced for the better, until her second birth. This is of course the lead-in to a follow-up, which will be titled “The Protector.”
Part of the fun of writing this book was the research, finding out about the place and time. I insist on getting things RIGHT, so if you like historical writing, you’ll enjoy having me take you there.
But, actually, Maraglindi’s story is very relevant to our own troubled times, with hate, exploitation, discrimination and disdain once more spreading like plagues.

1935. Hitler’s Nazi’s are firmly in control in Germany and the persecution of the Jews has begun in earnest. In this desperate time of uncertainty an unmarried Jewish woman gives birth to a daughter, whom she names Ruth.
But as the clouds of war gather, and it seems that Europe will once more be engulfed in conflict, Ruth’s mother makes the heart-wrenching decision to send her to safety on one of the ‘Kindertransport’ trains.
Arriving in England, Ruth is housed with a priest who raises her in the Christian faith, but also recognises her Jewish ancestry and so employs help to also raise her according to Jewish traditions.
It soon becomes apparent that Ruth is a very special child and has the ability to build bridges between people of different backgrounds, even at an early age.
From Nazi Germany to England and then to Australia, Ruth overcomes religious and ethnic intolerance and becomes an engineer on the Snowy Mountain Hydroelectric Project, defying all the odds.
It is a story of overcoming the brutality of life, of chasing your dreams and of bringing people together. But above all it is a story of hope.




A Word from the Author

author Gordon smith pictureRuth is the young daughter of an unmarried Jewish mother in Germany. Fearing for Ruth’s safety, her mother arranges for the “kinder transport” to take Ruth to England to be raised by an English Priest. Ruth’s mother is shot by the Gestapo just after handing Ruth to the Priest.Complying with Ruth Mother’s request, Ruth is raised as both a Christian and a Jew.

We follow this young child’s world during the time that England is constantly under attack. As she grows into womanhood, she builds confidence between various groups and gains respect from all quarters, even though she is still only a child.

After peace comes, she finishes school and then on to study engineering at university.

Her career takes her to Australia to work on the Snowy River Hydro Electric project where she meets her future husband. They return to England and marry, but the marriage is short-lived, so Ruth finds employment with an Engineering Company in Australia. Shortly after meeting and marrying her new husband, Ruth is catapulted into the upper management of the multinational company where she introduces major reforms.

The company she becomes president of actually belongs to Ruths Family and the profits are all used to run a charitable trust.

In her dual role, she is able to develop a massive project over several countries that will raise the standard of living for millions of starving downtrodden families. She also develops a simple but effective program to eliminate ethnic and religious divisions.
Lady Ruth Bromfield is a truly inspirational story.

A Word from the Author

Photo Author Lisa C. MillerThis is my second book of poetry. I am drawn to poetry because it simply reveals the beauty and flaws and shows the scars of humanity. When you read poetry a person can see humanity’s beauty or its ugliness.
I want to reveal to the disconnected .lost and broken-hearted souls of of humanity the beauty of life and the simplicity of Christ.
