Though they lived in different eras they shared the same resilience and spirit - these Women of the Sun. Alinta - she is one of the first to see the men with faces of clay, and one of the few to survive their invasion of the land of the Ancestors. Maydina - she must submit to a new Law, which preaches love while it takes her daughter away. Nerida - she seeks the strength to defy tyranny and give her people hope. Lo-arna - she discovers the secret of her origin and must come to terms with all that it means. This quartet of stories speaks with the simplicity and power of the Aboriginal voice, illuminating from their perspective the experience of two centuries of white domination.
