About the Book

In 1869 Australian Aborigines helped two Irishmen build the lighthouse at the Great Sandy Cape on K’Gari (Fraser Island), Queensland Australia. Their cooperation was later forgotten. This is a true stolen generation story; a lesson in acceptance of cultural differences. The compelling and stirring story starts with romance and ends in triumph.
