Of Ashes and Rivers that Run to the Sea by Marie Munkara

Of Ashes and Rivers that Run to the Sea

Marie Munkara has written an incredibly open and honest account of her life, having been removed from her family at three years old, adopted by strict Catholics, and then returning to her birth family.

She holds nothing back reflecting on her abusive adoptive parents and the challenges she faces when she reconnects with her family and country.

This book deals with her need to embrace aspects of both the culture she was raised in, and the one she had to start to relearn at twenty-eight-years-of-age. It raises issues that face Aboriginal people today and in the past, with candour and hope.
