My Place | [Sally Morgan]

My Place

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.
