Go in search of your mother by all means, but don't count on what you'll find . . .
Zelda Madison grew up knowing very little about her mother – only that she had been a dancer, an American, and that she had died. But Zelda learns that her mother was so much more than that. She was an international superstar, an idol – and she is still alive.
Leaving behind her quiet life in a remote fishing village on Flinders Island, Zelda sets off on the journey of a lifetime. Piecing together the few clues left to her, she digs deep into a painful past in the hope she can uncover a new future.
Moving from the rugged Tasmanian coast to the ashrams of India and the Himalayan foothills, Make Me an Idol is a beautifully touching story about how to be a mother, and how to live without one.
