Description

Odette Brown has lived her whole life on the fringes of a small country town. Raising her granddaughter Sissy on her own, Odette has managed to stay under the radar of the welfare authorities who are removing fair-skinned Aboriginal children from their communities. When a new policeman arrives in town determined to fully enforce the law, Odette must risk everything to save Sissy and protect her family. The White Girl is a remarkable novel whose unforgettable characters demonstrate a capacity for love and courage that are a timely reminder of the endurance of the human spirit.
