I have discovered Madeleine Brent's novels recently and liked those so much that I have tried to read all of them. Two of these novels I have not managed to find yet (for a reasonable price), but so far Golden Urchin is my favorite of Brent's novels. Mitji is a white girl which has been raised by aborigenes and as the novel starts she is leaving her tribe to go search for the tribes of more white people. And Mitji's personality is fascinating, she looks at things very differently than expected because of the way she was raised and it is touching to watch her adapt to Western civilization. The love story is also believable and touching. Excellent novel, very recommended.
In the scorching Australlian Desert, A wild beautiful woman recues a man from death... He was a handsome English aristocrat, sprawled in the dunes, dying of thirst. She was a white skinned savage, fleeing the aborigine tribe that found her and raised her but still shunned the fiery haired outcast.
Suddenly Meg is aboe to escape her primitive life as Luke introduces her to the strange ways of Victorian England. In a search filled with adventure and excitement that spans three continents, Meg uncovers the clues to her true identity and realizes someone is trying to kill her. But the mysteries and secrets of the aborigines still pulse through the Victorian young lady, enabling Meg to triumph in the final desperate battle for survival and claim the only man she will ever love.
This is a hard plot to describe-but it is a very good book. Meg was found and raised by an aborigine tribe.She saves the life of Luke, who takes her to Victorian England, where she uncovers clues about her true identity.
