Heart of the Grass Tree

Thursday 28th February / presented by Jorja Keay

Debut author Molly Murn has released her first novel, Heart of the Grass Tree, which concerns three generation of women on Kangaroo Island and looks back to its colonial history.

This history, she found, was that aboriginal women had been taken as wives for white sealers on the island, and more often than not, the women were forced into these relationships on the sealers’ terms, stolen from their homelands and brutalised.

These stories are the inspiration behind Heart of the Grass Tree.

Molly Murn joined RTRFM to discuss her new book.
