Daughter of the Wind
Daughter of the Wind is a Historical Fiction novel set in Egypt at the end of World War One. It focuses on the efforts of an Australian Lighthorse officer, Captain John Croaker, to get a captured al Khamsa mare, descended from the horses of the Prophet Mohamed, home to Australia. But the Australians are not taking their horses home, they are handing them over to the British, and General Allenby is after the mare for himself. With the aid of Tariq, an Egyptian horse trainer, they disguise and hide the mare until he can find a way to get her to back to Australia. While the Lighthorse Regiments wait in Egypt for the ships to take them home, the country explodes into demonstrations and violence. Caught up in the 1919 Egyptian Uprising against British occupation, the Regiments are rearmed to help suppress the protestors. Croaker’s plans to get the mare home seem even more unlikely amid this new turmoil. Based on actual events, this story brings to life a little remembered part of the Australian experience of WWI and its aftermath.
