Description - Make Me An Idol by Katherine Scholes
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.

Author Biography - Katherine Scholes
Katherine Scholes was born in Tanzania, East Africa, the daughter of a missionary doctor and an artist. She has fond memories of travelling with her parents and three siblings on long safaris to remote areas where her father operated a clinic from his Land Rover. When she was ten, the family left Tanzania, moving first to England and then settling permanently in Tasmania. As an adult, Katherine moved to Melbourne with her film-maker husband. The two worked together for many years, writing books and making films. They have now returned to Tasmania, where they live on the edge of the sea with their two sons. Katherine is the author of four international bestsellers- The Rain Queen, Make Me An Idol, The Stone Angel, The Hunter's Wife and The Lioness.
