Flying on Broken Wings
A journey of unimaginable betrayal, resilience and hope.
by Carrie Bailee
SOLD. She was nine years old.
Carrie Bailee fled Canada and came to Australia when she was twenty. Assisted by a number of Australian women, she was ultimately encouraged to apply for refugee status in order to stay in this country. Thus began her battle to be granted asylum in Australia. Carrie stood before the refugee review tribunal and revealed the dark underbelly of child sexual abuse and organised crime rings in our first-world, affluent neighbourhoods. This is the story of one young woman’s heroic journey to survive, escape and soar above her shocking childhood experiences, and her powerful struggle for freedom and a beautiful life in Australia.
It Happened in a Holden
Edited by Paddy O’Reilly
The Holden rolled into our lives in 1948 and has been firmly rooted in the Australian psyche ever since. The FJ, the EH, the Torana, the Kingswood, the panel van, the Monaro, the ute – each car is like a tuning fork for eras of Australian family, city and bush life. Almost every Australian has a Holden story, and this book is packed with tales from all walks of Australian life. They are funny, brave, warm, sad and sometimes ridiculous.
