Eileen’s narrative is embedded with South Australian history and heritage. Her story is also about survival, strength, and resourcefulness.

She experienced isolated and primitive conditions: dust storms, droughts, bush fi res, mouse and grasshopper plagues, a shotgun accident, a staged robbery and murder attempts!

Throughout her childhood Eileen’s mother was frequently violent and cruel towards her. Later, as a young adult, Eileen then entered a violent marriage after being raped and becoming pregnant. Ultimately Eileen escapes from violence. She was once visited personally by Sir Thomas Playford, the then Premier of South Australia, who listened to her story, and generously responded. Then at 70, at a time when most people are living a life of retirement Eileen fi nds out that two of her girls were having ‘fl ashbacks’ to being used in a paedophile ring of their paternal grandfather. They had developed Multiple Personality Disorder when young to cope with the terror and trauma they experienced.

Eileen drawing again on her resources and courage supported her daughters’ in their 20 year journey of recovery.
