Lizzie’s Tale (Old Balmain House Book 2)

by Graham Wilson

Inspirational story of courage in awful circumstances.

Raped and reduced to working in a brothel to keep her baby, unwed, teenage mother, Lizzie, forges a new life for herself and her child in the Kimberley region of Australia. But can she evade her persecutors and ultimately bring to them to justice?

This is a story of a girl from inner Sydney. Her family is poor, her father dies when she is nine, life is hard. But she rises above adversity. It is story of her struggle to survive and make a life of her own, first as a prostitute, then with her child in a remote outback town.

This is the second book in the series, “Old Balmain House” and begins in the same house as the first book and continues part of the story of Sophie, the girl who vanished half a century ago. Lizzie, aged eight, meets Sophie, the girl who lived in the same bedroom as a child. Sophie becomes her friend.

When Lizzie turns fifteen Sophie tries to warn her not to go in a car with three older boys.
Lizzie ignores her warning and is brutally raped by these three men.

Lizzie becomes pregnant and is determined to keep her child. She leaves Sydney and goes to Melbourne, to have and keep her baby. Here, penniless and desperate, she become a prostitute the only way she can support herself. She is discovered and the authorities try to take her child.

She flees to Broome, a small town in the furthest corner of of Australia. Here she assumes the role of widow with a small child and settles into this friendly town. Her life is good until a man from her former life finds her and threatens to expose her or harm her child.

She runs again. On a remote desert road her car breaks down. Without water, with her six year old daughter beside her, they face death from thirst. Help comes in an unexpected way. A silver locket of a long lost child is the key to her survival. She takes refuge in a local aboriginal community.

Her school friend from Balmain, now a journalist, seeks retribution from the men who raped Lizzie many years ago and have continued their ways with others. Now, as successful business men, they seek to use the law to deny justice. Finally the face their own justice, and again Lizzie’s courage is tested.
