Summary "The biography of a Victorian Koori woman who traced her family lineage back to the first contact between Indigenous Victorians and the founder of Melbourne. Daughter of Two Worlds by Dawn Lee begins with a tragic affair between Eliza Batman, the wife of Melbourne pioneer John Batman, and William Willoughby, Batman's right-hand man and a pillar of Melbourne's early Wesleyan church. The book also unearths the remarkable truth behind a family legend that Dawn Lee's great grandfather was a mysterious white English lord who met her great grandmother, Susannah, a full tribal Gunditjmara woman." -- CBOnline
