A first-hand emotional account of a mother's painful journey through loss and grief. Cindy Gambino has suffered great loss in her life, beginning as a young woman with the death of the love of her life in a road accident, to the subsequent tragedy of her life which made front page news in 2005 when her former husband, Robert Farquharson, deliberately drove his car into a rural Victorian dam near their home of Winchelsea, drowning their three children. Her partner Stephen Moules repeatedly dived into the dam to try and save the boys, while their father watched from the sidelines. Together with Megan Norris, Cindy tells her story of how she has found the will to live, but why the past still haunts her. About the Author: Megan Norris is a prize-winning journalist with a career spanning 34 years.

Forbidden Love: A Harrowing True Story of Love and Revenge in Jordan [used book], Norma Khouri
3 Forbidden Love: A Harrowing True Story of Love and Revenge in Jordan [used book]
Norma Khouri Australia Bantam Books 2003 1863253483 / 9781863253482 Soft cover Good Book Trade Paperback 
Jordan is a predominantly Muslim country in the heart of the Arab world with around four percent of the population belonging to various Christian denominations. It is a modern, technologically advanced and (would like the world to believe) rapidly democratizing nation. It is a country that welcomes the future while holding fast to its ancient roots and traditions. But for women, progress is negligible. They are now allowed to study any subject they want, but only as long as they have their father's, brother's or husband's agreement. In a country that boasts advancement, a woman's choice is still made by a man. Controlled by fear instilled in them by generations of male dominance, their only option is to live carefully within the rules. Dalia was a young, beautiful, Arabian Muslim living with her family in Amman, Jordan. But aged 25, she unexpectedly fell in love with Michael, a young Catholic man, a major in the Royal Army. She was forced to keep her relationship with him secret and knew that if the relationship became public it could cost her her life. Two months after her 26th birthday, Dalia was the victim of an honour-killing at the hands of her father. Her older brother had become suspicious and reported it to their father. Dalia was still a virgin. Her only crime was to fall in love. Norma Khouri Albqaeen's book is a gift to the memory of her life-long friend and an attempt to bring to the world's attention the plight of thousands of women still subject to inhumane rules in a society where honour-killing is allowed and accepted and goes completely unpunished. Defying tradition and confronting Dalia's family about the killing, Norma was forced to flee the country when her own family threatened to kill her for shaming them in public. She fled to Athens where she worked as a housemaid and wrote this book in Internet cafes. She now lives in Australia.

4 The Gatton Murders [used book][hard to get]
Stephanie Bennett Australia MacMillan 2004 1405035749 / 9781405035743 Soft cover Very Good Book Trade Paperback 
Boxing Day, 1898. Three members of the Murphy family Michael, Ellen and Norah are returning to the family farm after a trip into Gatton, a small Queensland town. On a deserted, moonlit road a few miles out of town they are ambushed. Their horse is shot and the Murphys, all aged in their twenties, are taken to a remote paddock where they are bludgeoned and shot, and the women brutally raped. So begins the story of an horrific and baffling crime. What followed was a hopelessly bungled investigation, and the crime remained unsolved. Fear and mistrust rocked the farming community, and theories about the perpetrator abounded. Stephanie Bennett's detailed examination of this unsolved crime brings a new and disturbing theory to the surface. The result is a chilling and challenging whodunit.
