Description - Shadow Lines by Stephen Kinnane
Shadow Lines is the story of Jessie Argyle, born in the remote East Kimberley and taken from her Aboriginal family at the age of five, and Edward Smith, a young Englishman escaping the rigid structures of London. In a society deeply divided on racial lines, Edward and Jessie met, fell in love and married against strong opposition. Despite unrelenting surveillance and harassment the Smith home was a centre for Aboriginal cultural and social life for over thirty years. A deeply personal story of two remarkable people. A powerful and lyrical work by a writer of vision and imagination.
