The author of the bestselling ‘Mutant Message Downunder’ conjures up a tale of self-enlightenment about two aboriginal twins, separated at birth and the search for their roots that cause them to reunite from halfway across the world.
In Mutant Message Downunder, Marlo Morgan entranced readers with the story of a woman’s unexpected four-month walkabout through the Australian outback with a tribe of aboriginals.
In her new novel, Morgan unveils more aboriginal worldview through the story of aboriginal twins who grow up apart. A boy is adopted by an American family and raised in the US with little sense of who he really is or of his cultural heritage. His sister is sent to an orphanage in Australia where she learns nothing of abriginal culture and encounters continual racism. After a series of shattering losses, she strikes out into the desert, the land of her ancestors, where she discovers the spiritual truths that have been missing in her life. Becoming a ‘runner between the worlds’, she begins working as a political activist.
Her work brings her into contact with her brother, but at first neither is aware of their true relationship to each other. The twins grow and change as they share their experiences with one another. Their journey teaches invaluable lessons about the quest for enlightenment and identity.

FOLLOWING THE SUCCESS OF HER WORLDWIDE BESTSELLER, ' MUTANT MESSAGE DOWN UNDER', THIS IS MARLO MORGAN'S LONG-AWAITED NEW NOVEL
'Message From Forever' is the story of Australian aboriginal twins who are taken from their mother by Christian missionaries. The baby boy is sent up to a sheep ranch, where he grows up with little adult supervision and random affection. At the age of five he is adopted by an American minister and is raised in the US with little sense of who he is or of his cultural heritage. His sister is brought up by nuns in an Australian orphanage where she encounters continual racism for the first eighteen years of her life.
As they become adults, Beatrice renounces her Western lifestyle and joins a small group of aboriginals on a walkabout. After decades of learning about the people of the outback, she becomes a 'runner between both worlds' and steps into the political arena to fight for the rights of aboriginal peoples. Her work brings her into contact with her brother Geoff who has fallen into crime and addiction. Beatrice shares 'The Message From Forever' with him, which outlines aboriginal philosophy and the principles of good living.
The message is one that challenges our concepts of identity, spirituality and environmental involvement and shows us how we can live our lives in accordance with ageless values and simple wisdom.
