Tears of the moon and under the Kimberly sun by Di Morrissey are both excellent books but you wont find them in e-format unfortunately. I have both as audio books and enjoyed them very much. The first tells the story of a woman whose mother has always been silent on their family background. Following the mother's death she goes to Broome in search of her family history. Deals with issues of migration from England to Australia, the pearling industry and issues of aboriginal culture and how this was stripped form people, although it is a bit of a romanticized view of these issues, as well as a love story. The second book deals with the next generation and has some mystery and intrigue thrown in as well. Both are worth a read.
