Her Mother's Secret on Apple Books
The ghosts of that past still linger. What happened all those years ago and how did it cause the rift between mother and daughter? Returning home means she has to confront the past and try and forgive her mother and find out what secret her mother was keeping.
What these characters all have in common are secrets, either secrets they have themselves or are affected by a secret kept by others, than have made them, or a member of their family leave the Island. The island seems to have healing properties, the characters grow and as their relationships develop they find they can help each other.

All realise that sometimes you have to go back and confront your past before you can move forward with your future. I found a Hallmark card written to me, expressing her love. I also discovered yellow legal pads full of notes from books and articles about perpetrators, family systems theory and ideas on how to help your adult daughter heal from sexual violence.

All My Mother's Secrets
We now know the effects of that comradely smoking but even the Repatriation Board was reluctant to help the ex-army nurse in her hour of need — her two loves, the medical profession and the army, both let her down. She spent her last months trying to ensure that Nadia would escape her father. She is, of course, an accomplished biographer and novelist, revered by young readers for My Place and Five Times Dizzy.
She also resists any temptation to sentimentality about her mother. Despite frequent requests, she refused even to tell her daughter where her first name came from — what was the fate of the displaced person called Nadia? This memoir is full of material about aspects of Australian life that rarely receive close attention — both the public experience of war and its aftermath, and the private life of families.
Every part of it complicates received simplicities about our history. It is an important addition to the history of Australian social life, and a vivid insight into how individual people can be controlled by repressive social attitudes. Wheatley reminds us of the difference between how family life is supposed to be, and how it is actually experienced. Topics: biography books. About Support Sign up Search Search. Susan Lever.
