From the award-winning short-story writer and founder of the Bundaberg Writers’ Club, Krubi’s Dreamtime is the compelling sequel of the well-received romance fiction Mirikata Magic. Author Bette Shiels’ fourth and latest novel follows the love saga of Kaylene Scott, an ambitious young woman, and her highly intriguing half-caste Aboriginal lover, Todd Wilson, as they defy laws and customs and taunt the forces that are against mixed race marriage.

Kaylene falls in love with part-Aboriginal, Todd, in the South Australian desert, and they travel down to Victoria’s Gippsland District to marry and refurbish a derelict caravan park in a coastal fishing village. They ignore a tribal Elder’s warning of tribal revenge for flaunting the law in a mixed race marriage.

Kaylene has learnt to adapt to her husband’s Dreamtime Legends, but finds herself on the receiving end of racial prejudice from her Caucasian counterparts, and they are soon embroiled in murder and a kidnapping case, when Todd’s past love, the beautiful Sapphire, invades their life, causing mystery and intrigue.

Kaylene soon finds she has her own style of Dreamtime, surrounded by the forgotten past of the historical Port, where the first Governor of Victoria once resided, and history refuses to remain buried.

For Mirikata Magic fans, the long wait for a sequel is finally over. Krubi’s Dreamtime is a novel that will engage readers from beginning to end with its trademark blend of history and controversy, mystery and magic.
