Monaro, the Great Australian Spirit

Share Article

Monaroo, LLC extends a warm thanks to everyone who has read Monaro by the Late Alyn Marland. A story that richly describes the uniqueness of the Great Australian Spirit as portrayed by the author in the Wakefield Family.

Monaroo, LLC would like to sincerely thank those people that have read Monaro by the late Alyn Marland and found it to be the fascinating narrative that so completely describes the Great Australian Spirit.

It has been said that Monaro captures the very essence of the Australian people. The Wakefield Family is brought to life by the late author and ensnares the reader to the point that it is impossible to put the book down. The late Alyn Marland through his love for his country and the descriptions that he provides of the generous nature of his fellow countrymen, bring a wholesomeness to this work that one seldom finds in works of similar nature.

A recent reviewer said:

""Recently I had the good fortune to read the book "Monaro" by Alyn Marland. Once I started to read
"Monaro" I could not put it down until I finished the whole book. The story tells of a typical Australian family
in the early 1900s until the 1970s. Travelling through more than one generation we experience their highs and their lows, making one feel they are taking the journey with them. Not a lot has been written about the typical Australian family in this era and this book gives you an insight into these times. It is a very interesting book and very well written. I thoroughly recommend it!"

A further reviewer noted:

"Monaro by the late Alyn Marland is set in Australia from the late Victorian era to the Vietnam War.
The author has managed to describe a time in Australia's history when life was hard and the enduring Australian spirit was everywhere to be seen. The great Australian "mateship" is prevalent throughout this story and this "mateship" is what made Australia the great country that it is today...."

The late author through his own experiences and knowledge gained through a lifetime, has written a novel which is not just enjoyable but extremely educational as well.
