“Mandragora” by David Mc Robbie is the story of parallel lives and how

particular have been around since 1886.
According to “Mandragora”, a ship called the Dunarling was not only
carrying 85 passengers wanting to shift from Scotland to South
Australia, but also the four dolls. Each named and cursed. ‘Swith’ was
