Mick Mahoney is an Aboriginal man on trial for the death of his wife, Mary Richardson. After Mick is tried and convicted of murdering his wife, he is transferred to Grafton prison, where he spends a year. There Mick serves his sentence and embarks on a journey of friendship with his cellmate, Keg, as Mick serves his time for a crime he believes he never committed.

While in prison, Mick Mahoney tells of how he was taken away from his family just before his eighth birthday by “the Catcher Lady” to be raised in children’s homes, where his childhood is stolen as he endures atrocities of life in Kinchela Boy’s Home.

After growing up, Mick decides finds works as a stockman in Queensland before moving to the township of Kempsey where he meets Mary. Through Mick’s troubled childhood, the reader comes to understand Mick as a character he or she can relate to, making A Kinchela Boy an engrossing read.

From the evils of prison life to Mick’s inner turmoils, A Kinchela Boy unfolds as the painfully believable story of an Aboriginal man’s troubled journey from childhood in the Stolen Generations to life in prison and beyond.
