From the Wreck tells the remarkable story of George Hills, who survived the sinking of the steamship Admella off the South Australian coast in Haunted by his memories and the disappearance of a fellow survivor, George’s fractured life is intertwined with that of a woman from another dimension, seeking refuge on Earth/5(). When George Hills was pulled from the wreck of the steamship Admella, he carried with him memories of a disaster that claimed the lives of almost every other soul on board. Almost every other soul. Because as he clung onto the wreck, George wasn't alone: someone else - or something else - kept George warm and bound him to life. The catalyst for the book was the story of Rawson’s great-great-grandfather who spent eight days stuck on a reef when the steamship Admella was wrecked, but this is not like any family history I have ever read. George Hills is rescued, only to be haunted by the horrors of those dying around him/5(3).   Congratulations on finishing. I went to Google to see where Campbell’s Reef is (s/w of Mt Gambier apparently) and see there is already a Wreck of the Admella, but a children’s book and anyway I suppose your mum wants a family saga. Me, I prefer the SF approach and look forward very much to reading ‘From the Wreck’.
