White Spirit (A novel based on a true story)

 

Here’s what one Amazon reviewer (‘Kotuku’) has to say: “This is a Tour De Force of a book that follows the lives of convicts, guards, soldiers and above all the Aborigines of that time (1830’s)…Don’t be put off by the length, as every page and chapter is riveting…and the descriptions of the Aborigines is unparalleled in any other novel I have read. It is crying out to be made into a movie!”

And here’s what other reviewers say:

“This has to be my #1 for book of 2016. A must read.” -Tony Parsons

“It is an excellent book with great characters and a simple plot which is made complex by the many subplots. It is not a book to rush through but one to savor.” -P. Blevins

This was an amazing story. It is a sad story of mans ability to survive. It is definitely a page turner, I couldn’t put the book down.” -Mary L.Traylor

“One of the best novels I have ever read it kept me enthralled from start to finish. I couldn’t put it down – “a real fecking page turner” which will have you rooting for the Irishman John Graham. I hope there will be a movie made.” -Amazon Customer 

“I couldn’t put the book down. It is an outstanding and very satisfying read.” -Cyrano1db

“This is Lance and James Morcan’s best work to date. It is up there with Colleen McCullough’s Thorn Birds.” -Yvonne Crowe (author)

Amazing Story! I didn’t want to put it down! Sometimes fact is better than fiction. It took me a few days to read, since it’s a long book, but it’s well worth the effort!” -BCopanos

Finding a worthy follow-up to our popular historical novel Into the Americas  was always going to be a challenge, but we believe we’ve achieved that with our new release historical adventure WHITE SPIRIT (A novel based on a true story).

  white-spirit-ebook-cover

Set in 19th Century Australia, White Spirit  is based on the adventures of Irish Convict John Graham who escaped the brutal Moreton Bay penal settlement in what was then New South Wales, and lived with a tribe of Aborigines who eventually came to accept him as one of their own.

This epic tale caters as much for lovers of romance novels as it does for action and adventure fans. A love triangle adds to the storyline’s tension.

It’s fair to say few have heard of John Graham. That’s surprising, to us at least, because John’s adventures in the wilds of an untamed Australia must surely rank with the most incredible true-life tales of survival. Not only Down Under, but anywhere in the world. Having both lived in Australia for many years, and having experienced first-hand the harshness of its climate and terrain, we, the authors, can only marvel at John’s bravery, endurance and fortitude.

Though White Spirit  is first and foremost a novel and therefore a work of fiction, many of the adventures described therein happened – exactly as related in some cases, and with some embellishments for drama’s sake in others.

In reality, John Graham’s story was so unbelievably remarkable it needn’t have been dramatized. However, as novelists, we couldn’t resist expanding upon and adding characters to certain true-life events. The great challenge, of course, was the need to always stay true to the broad historical realities while subtly infusing “fiction”.

We sincerely hope we have also done justice to the Indigenous Australians in our writing. We strived for accuracy and balance in our portrayals of these unique Aboriginal people; we show the cruelty the Aborigines were capable of, and we show their love for family, their community-mindedness, their incredible hunting and tracking skills, and their ability to survive in the most unforgiving of environments.
