9780984541034: Gift of Sydney: An Epic Novel of the Struggle to Forge the Multicultural, World-Class City of Sydney, Australia (Three Book Series About Sydney, Australia)

GIFT OF SYDNEY is an epic novel of the struggle to forge the multicultural, world-class city of Sydney, Australia. It is the second in the series of novels about the history of the city and Australia. In 1903, the wealthy and powerful Armstrongs are concerned about their "convict stain." The Fongs rail against the White Australia Policy that is driving Chinese out of Australia and preventing their relatives from immigrating. The Hudsons suffer under government programs that manage them as part of the vexing "Aboriginal problem." The country is rich from wool and gold but insecure. Its principal protector and trading partner, Britain, is 15,000 miles away. The three families all suffer in the world wars and the Great Depression, but experience a profound change when the racist White Australia Policy is finally rejected and a humanitarian policy opens the doors to accept the desperate Vietnamese boat people. Once again, Richards's storytelling is impeccably researched, fast paced, action-adventure driven, and full of family saga emotion and drama. His two extraordinary novels together have the authenticity and authority of the finest historical fiction that strike a resounding chord of hope for all humanity.

Review:

"A truly gifted storyteller, Manning Richards' 'Gift of Sydney' continues to display his impressive attention to historical detail and his ability to deftly create truly memorable characters embedded in a consistently gripping narrative. A totally satisfying entertainment from beginning to end, 'Gift of Sydney' will leave enthusiastic readers looking forward to the third volume in this outstanding series. For those to whom 'Gift of Sydney' is their first introduction to Manning Richards, also highly recommended is the first title in the series, 'Destiny in Sydney.' " - The Midwest Book Review 


"GIFT OF SYDNEY is a family saga enthrallingly told. It is highly commended for its Aboriginal experience in the story of Sydney, Australia." - Nigel Parbury, author of Survival: A History of Aboriginal Life in New South Wales
