あらすじ・解説

In 1982, Sally Morgan travelled back to her grandmother's birthplace. What started as a tentative search for information about her family, turned into an overwhelming emotional and spiritual pilgrimage. My Place is a moving account of a search for truth into which a whole family is gradually drawn, finally freeing the tongues of the author's mother and grandmother, allowing them to tell their own stories.

A tale of a long hard road to understanding

What made the experience of listening to My Place the most enjoyable?

The story of My Place was not always enjoyable as it made me look into my own heart and soul and see what fears and sins lie there. But the overall enjoyment of listening to the book was what I can only describe as fulfilling as the story unfolded into a still uncertain but better enlightened future for a young woman and her family.

What other book might you compare My Place to and why?

My place reminds me of another Australian auto biography "A Fortunate Life" by Albert Facey, a tale of overcoming hardship through great strength of character.

What about Melodie Reynolds’s performance did you like?

The reader gave a wonderful performance, I could see and feel the story through her voice.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

A tale of a long hard, but fruitful road, to understanding herself and her family in a country afraid to face its history.

A much loved story

I was first inroduced to this book 20 years ago as an undergrad student teacher. I loved it then so was delighted to revisit the story in audiobook format. It remains a warm and honest insight into a family striving to find its historical roots whilst simultaneously striving to hide from it. The narrator read well but I found her pronunctiation of some words to be odd and this distracted me from time to time but a great true story and important part of Australia's history.

A poignant rendering of our neglected history

The sad truth of Australian history is that white people enslaved Aboriginal Australians for much of our history. This book tells the story of how the yearning for family and identity is a powerful need. this book opens the eyes to the tragedy of Aboriginal treatment and serves as a lesson on how the little things keep people connected.

Essential listening for all Australians

I realise I'm about 30 years late to the party, but there's a reason My Place is a classic.

Beautiful Story

What a beautiful story written from the heart! I laughed, I cried too along with a host of other emotions. It was well written and beautifully read. I would recommend every Australian to read this depiction of a wonderful life. Thank you Sally Morgan for telling us your story. It’s part of Australia’s history.

Their Place

Always was, Always will be.
Beautifully written, I fell in love with Nan. So happy she wasn't just a fictional character in a novel.

Funny, sad,

I didn't really know what the story was about at the start but ended up being a very sad and interesting story about the atrocities that indigenous people had to endure in days gone by. Had to shed a tear.
