Description - The River Charm by Belinda Murrell

A river pebble on a charm bracelet has an astonishing true story to tell, of one family s bravery and survival in harsh colonial Australia . . . When artistic Millie visits a long-lost aunt, she learns the true story of her family s tragic past. Could the mysterious ghost girl Millie has painted be her own ancestor? In 1839, Charlotte Atkinson lives at Oldbury, a gracious estate in the Australian bush, with her Mamma and her sisters and brother. But after the death of Charlotte s father, things start to go terribly wrong. There are murderous convicts and marauding bushrangers. Worst of all, Charlotte s new stepfather is cruel and unpredictable. Frightened for their lives, the family flees on horseback to a stockman s hut in the wilderness. Charlotte s mother and the children must fight to save their property, their independence and their very right to be a family. Will they ever return together to their beautiful home? Based on the incredible true-life battles of Belinda Murrell s own ancestors, one of Australia s early artistic and literary families, the Atkinsons of Oldbury.
