A Little Piece of Heaven is the story of Auntie Ruth and Uncle Dick Carney, elders of the Narromine community. The couple tell their story in their own words, delivering a truly extraordinary untold tale of Aboriginal life in country NSW through the twentieth century.
From humble beginnings on a campsite near Warren, the story moves through the western shearing sheds and the dances where Dick faces rejection and finds acceptance, to Narromine, where the shearer finds a home, a community, and enduring love. In 55 years of marriage, Dick and Ruth Carney have been through loss and triumph, learned and grown together, and built a life that is a testament to their endurance, generosity, and love.
