HE'D SAVED HER LIFE When the riptide unloosed her, Allie Carter washed ashore at the feet of Lorne de Marigny, monarch of Carramer. A prince unparalleled in handsomeness…and in having his desires fulfilled. And he demanded that Allie remain at his villa with him and his son. COULD SHE RESCUE A PRINCE? Acting as adorable Nori's companion silenced…
Returning to Australia in 1956, Deveson built a career (unusual in the 1960s for a young mother) as a provocative commentator on issues of social justice and equality, and, as a member of the groundbreaking and controversial Commission into Human Rights, she argued passionately for the disadvantaged.
We share with her, through dramatic filming experiences in Africa, horror at the traumas of conflict and the need to understand its resolution. Deveson reflects on human yearning for a peaceful space in which ordinary family life may be lived - often taken for granted, too often lost.
Deveson's unique voice, her humour and humility shine through this memoir of experiences and ideas. She argues persuasively that, were we to wage peace with all the resources and passion that we wage war, differences could be resolved, and peace restored.
