Ms. Cunningham shows an Australia beautiful and brutal. You know it isn't going to be a gentle ride but you're still not expecting to be kicked out of your seat onto the desert floor, rolling to a stop in the sharp-as-glass spinifex. Don't be surprised when you want to put it down but can't.

One of the best novels in ten years.

- Hackney Literary Awards Committee

In this fast-paced suspense novel, Gabriel Branch leaves his home on the Queensland coast to search the rugged outback for his best friend. Although Gabe is a biracial Aborigine, he lost all ties to his culture when the government forcibly removed him from his family when he was a child. Everything about the red desert seems alien including the artifact, a message stick, that is his only clue.

While crisscrossing the unforgiving terrain he draws the attention of Dana Pukatja, a Pitjantjatjara shaman who runs the smuggling ring. Using his traditional knowledge and many tricks, he stalks Gabe to keep him from discovering the truth. As Gabe struggles with the loss of both his friend and his biological family, the shaman draws closer. The men clash on an arid plain of twisted mulga shrub far from any law except that of the outback itself.

Message Stick provides a panoramic look at Australia, its land, its peoples and the social issues that continue to this day. The novel won two national awards and was supported by The Jerome Foundation, the New York Mills Cultural Center and Cornucopia Arts Center.

Review by Michael Rhys Scott, President, Swan Press

Our present lives are constantly being affected by events that have long passed. Even when the past is unknown, the hands of time have a way of reaching into our lives to guide us down paths we might never choose to follow.

In Message Stick, author Laine Cunningham takes us into the remarkable, yet very real mythical world of the Australian Aborigine. A culture that exists between the delicate balance of the tangible world and the realm of spiritual consciousness. It's a world where those with a greater understanding of the past are more likely to survive while the ignorant must guard themselves from that which is unknown.

In a story involving a battle for sacred artifacts, the author's in-depth knowledge of cultural history paints a surreal landscape in a place where anything is possible. Her exquisite eye for detail transports us to the exotic, and sometimes treacherous, outback where good and evil frequently collide in a conflict of wits, magic, determination and will.

With Message Stick, Ms. Cunningham has given her readers the unique privilege of

enjoying two tales in one. There is the intense psychological battle between the ruthless and the innocent framed within the mysteries of a culture time has chosen to forget but which is not yet forgotten.

Autorenporträt
After Laine Cunningham's debut novel manuscript won a national literary award, Jack Scovil became her agent. Mr. Scovil worked with Norman Mailer, Carl Sagan, Morris West and Arthur C. Clark. Their ten-year relationship ended when he passed. Laine then developed a new fiction voice that resulted in On a Rush of Silent Wings, a literary black comedy dealing with income inequality and the illusions we choose to believe. Currently she is developing an epic historical novel set in Europe during the scientific revolution before the Enlightenment. Her novels include The Family Made of Dust: A Novel of Loss and Rebirth in the Australian Outback, which won two national awards. Beloved, a sensual noir thriller, follows an FBI agent who must access the dark power of the goddess Kali to bring down two serial killers. In Reparation, a Lakota Sioux man must save a sister and his lover from a sinister peyote cult. Laine's goal for her fiction is to spur readers into dialog about our society and the parallels found in history. When individuals recognize how large issues build on multiple small elements, many of which were taken up by individuals just like them, they recognize that everyone can foment change. As a publishing consultant with twenty years of experience, she has written Writing While Female or Black or Gay: Diverse Voices in Publishing. Also look for Seven Sisters: Spiritual Messages from Aboriginal Australia. More information can be found on LaineCunningham.com and WritersResource.us.
