Following on from the success of her first novel, 'Secrets Mothers Keep', author Linda J Bettenay shares the inspiration and stories behind her recently released book.
'Wishes For Starlight' tells a story of injustice for Aboriginal people living in Australia in the 1900s through the fictional story of a boy called Starlight. This astounding tale has been passed down from Linda's father's and grandfather's memories and is anchored in the Perth Hills.
