New Triskele Book Release - The Swooping Mapgie

"Heartbreaking drama of lost innocence, deceit and a scandal that shook Australia." Jill's Book Cafe

Cover by JD Smith Design

It is difficult for any Australian born after the feminist movement to understand the plight of being sixteen, pregnant and unmarried in 1970. The sanctity of marriage was still the vital cornerstone of society and it was impossible to envisage raising a child outside this union blessed by church and state.

For a girl bringing such disgrace to her family, it was an unforgiving world. Rather than being able to rejoice at bringing forth this new life, these girls were shunted into a world of shame –– hidden at home or sent interstate to homes for unmarried mothers.

But The Swooping Magpie isn't simply the story of a society refusing support to mothers battling to raise an infant alone. It also exposes the brutal adoption industry practices that targeted healthy newborns for infertile couples.

Until the mid-70s it was common practice to adopt out the babies of unwed mothers. In the 1960s, Sydney’s Crown Street Women’s Hospital was one of largest sources of Australia’s adopted babies. Patient documents from Crown Street and other maternity hospitals show that from the moment most unmarried girls arrived, their records were marked “for adoption”.

From 1950 – 1980, an estimated 250,000 girls had their newborns taken. Many claimed they were duped into signing paperwork whilst under postpartum sedation, or made to feel selfish if they kept their babies. Forced to pay this terrible price for pregnancy outside marriage, thousands of women harboured their grief, in silence, for decades.

We might ask ourselves how these women survived. Did they “just forget about it and get on with their lives” as urged by an arrogant and punitive society? The stories I heard demonstrate that frequently, the trauma of their loss never left them. Made to feel unworthy and unfit, they developed psychological problems. Some never married. Some never gave birth again.

The Swooping Magpie is on NEW RELEASE promo for only 99c/p from your favourite retailer:


If you'd like to read book 1 (a standalone) in this 1970s Aussie family drama series, The Silent Kookaburra is also available at your favourite retailer.

  37. برای عکسِ
    آتلیه نوزاد، فقط بیست تا بیست و پنج روز وقت دارین. دنیای نوزاد خیلی پاک و چهره اون معصوم‌ترین و شادترین چهره توی دنیای پیچیده ما آدم بزرگاست. پس بیاین این لحظه‌های شیرینو که فقط بیست روزه، با کمک گرفتن از متخصصین توی آتلیه، پررنگ و زنده توی ذهنمون ثبت کنیم.
    مسلماً عجیب‌ترین و بی‌نظیرترین حس در طول زندگیتون، لحظه‌ای بود که نوزاد دلبندتون به شما هدیه شد و پا به عرصه هستی گذاشت. میتونین تمامی این حس و زیبایی اونو با عکس آتلیه نوزاد، برای همیشه تازه نگه دارین.
    توی دنیا هیچ حسی شیرین‌تر و خاطره‌انگیزتر از لحظه‌ای نیست که یک عضو جدید به خانوادتون اضافه میشه. این حس به‌مرورزمان و با بزرگ شدن دلبندتون، کم‌رنگ و کمرنگ‌تر میشه چون اون کارهای قشنگ دیگه‌ای یاد میگیره و کم‌کم حرکات و رفتارش بزرگ‌تر میشه.
    آتلیه کودک
    اینو از روی تجربه بهتون میگیم. زمانی که مراجعین ما برای عکسای بعدی کودکشون به آتلیه مراجعه میکنن، اعتراف میکنن که اگه عکسای قشنگ نوزادشون نبود، به‌مرور اون لحظه‌های زیبا فراموش می‌شد و به همین دلیل اقدام به عکس گرفتن در آتلیه کودک میکنن. این یه تجربه هست که اگه در این مورد از تجربه دیگران استفاده نکنید، دیگه نمیتونین اون لحظه‌ها رو برگردونین که ثبتش کنین. چون ثبت یک عکس توی آتلیه نوزاد، متوقف کردن زمانه که هرگز تکرار نمیشه.
    شما از پنج‌روزگی این فرشته زمینی تا بیست و پنج‌روزگی وقت دارین ازش عکس نوزادی توی آتلیه بگیرین. حتی اگه صورتش حالت نوزادیو حفظ کنه بدنش انعطاف زمان نوزادیو نداره. پس زودتر به آتلیه نوزاد بیاین و این لحظه‌های خاطره‌انگیز رو ثبت کنین.
    ممکنه بگین ما خودمون از نوزادمون عکسای قشنگی میگیریم. ولی مطمئناً شما با آزمون‌وخطا لحظه‌های زیبای زیادی رو از دست میدین که ما توی آتلیه نوزاد میتونیم اونو زنده کنیم. شاید باورتون نشه که عکسای آتلیه به خاطر حرفه‌ای بودنشون همیشه مثل روز اولی که ثبت شدن، شما رو به ذوق و شوق میارن. ثبت لبخند معصوم و زیبای این فرشته کوچولو هیچ‌وقت از یادتون نمیره اگه اونو توی آتلیه نوزاد به ثبت برسونین.
    آتلیه بارداری
    عکس آتلیه نوزاد صبر و حوصله زیادی رو میطلبه گاهی دو تا سه ساعت باید منتظر بمونی که بتونی از نوزاد توی حالتای مختلفی مثل لبخند، خنده بلند، اخم، برگردوندن لب و حتی گریه عکس بگیری. کیفیتی که عکس آتلیه نوزاد داره به‌هیچ‌وجه قابل‌مقایسه با عکاسی توی خونه نیست حتی اگه با دوربینای حرفه‌ای گرفته بشه. دلیلشم اینه که متخصصای باتجربه تمام نکته‌های یه عکس زنده رو میدونن. نکته‌هایی مثل زاویه‌ها، زوم کردنها، تعیین نقطه‌ای که دلبندتون باید توی عکس قرار بگیره نسبت به وسایل اطرافش و خیلی نکات دیگه.
    پس تا فرشته کوچولوتون به بیست و پنج‌ روزگی نرسیده و بزرگ‌تر نشده اقدام کنین. حضور شما توی آتلیه نوزاد، باعث افتخار ماست. ما لحظه‌های شیرین دلبندتونو به طرز باورنکردنی به خاطره‌ای زیبا تبدیل می‌کنیم
