              During a routine family holiday to her husband s homeland of Turkey, Lisa Kennedy was suddenly told their marriage was over. Her husband took their six-month-old baby from her care and instructed her to go home to Australia, alone beginning four years of hell in Istanbul as she f...ought the case through both Turkish and International courts all the while battling people she once called family, now hell-bent on not letting her leave with her only son. Finally, with time against her and all faith lost in legal channels, Lisa realised she had only a mothers choice: she had to save herchild and get back home by whatever means available. That meant calling on outside help and, to raise awareness about the frailties of international marriage and children, 60 Minutes agreed to film the plight, long before the controversy surrounding Sally Faulkners children in Lebanon exploded. This is the heart-stopping story that is now unlikely ever be aired.

Lisa fought for Turkish permanent custody and an International Hague return order simultaneously, so that she could return to Australia legally with her child. However, the protracted processes through a foreign legal system kept them in a holding pattern with no end in sight. Finally, with time against her and all faith lost in legal channels, Lisa realised she had only a mother's choice: she had to save her child and get back home by whatever means available. That meant calling on outside help and, to raise awareness about the frailties of international marriage and children, 60 Minutes agreed to film the plight.This is the story of that fraught, heart-stopping escape

              An Aboriginal ceremony of Welcome to Country is depicted for the first time in a stunning board book from two Indigenous Australians. Welcome to the lands of the Wurundjeri people. The people are part of the land, and the land is a part of them. Aboriginal communities across Aust...ralia have boundaries that are defined by mountain ranges and waterways. Traditionally, to cross these boundaries, permission is required. Each community has its own way of greeting, but the practice shares a common name: a Welcome to Country. Aunty Joy Murphy Wandin, the senior Aboriginal elder of the Wurundjeri people, channels her passion for storytelling into a remarkable and utterly unique picture book that invites readers to discover some of the history and traditions of her people. Indigenous artist Lisa Kennedy gives the Wurundjeri Welcome to Country form in beautiful paintings rich with blues and browns, as full of wonder and history as the tradition they depict.
