This is the true story of how a girl in Australia was taken from her parents and educated in a Catholic mission. In 1965, she was forced to become a domestic on a wealthy estate, where she woke before dawn every day and slaved for fifteen hours. She ate off a tin plate and slept on a shabby cot above a garage. All because of the color of her skin. This sort of thing wasn't supposed to happen anymore. Here is the frightening yet victorious story of how it did and how that young woman who fought her way out. "[An] affecting memoir...Her harrrowing story, dispassionately told, could well be fiction." THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW
