Event description

Description

Internationally recognised herbalist, author and artist Ruth Sharkey is proud to announce the culmination of 25 years work with the release of her tenth book and first novel.

A modern take on David and Goliath; one man’s fight against the mighty. Today’s Goliath’s are the multinational corporate institutions who have the money and power to swing the balance and destroy any opposition.

Set in the Currumbin Valley of the Gold Coast during the political times of the late 20th century, Makara’s Mission shares with optimism and humour an interweaving of ancient myths, beliefs and traditions with modern political intrigue, religious abuse, domestic violence, medical bullying and pharmaceutical corruption.

The fast-paced journey of the family of an incarnate master, his mission - unbeknownst to his adult children - will have a profound effect on their close-knit family as it weaves an intricate tapestry of loose ends with unanswered questions.

Each in their own way accepts the challenge to fight for change - ecological, medical and governmental - yet none foresee the impact the old man’s mission will have on their families.

Come enjoy a cup of devonshire tea as we celebrate this massive achievement - while listening to a story or two from her 20+ years in practice.

Now retired and living in Woodbridge, Tamania, Makara’s Mission is loosely based on events Ruth, her husband Dennis and their family experienced, and is laced with humour, mythology, and philosophical / spiritual concepts.
