Teresa is an outstanding addition to the New Australian series. Aussie Reviews


A fascinating historical novel ... insightful and entertaining. Sunday Telegraph


Teresa gives us a wonderful character who shares her family’s journey through the excitement, frustration and joys of becoming Australian. Thanks for a great read.

Jackie Hawkes, Teacher/Librarian

Inspired by Deb’s own family’s story of survival, comes a novel of courage, bravery and one very determined little girl.

Stories such as this are immensely important because they speak of that place from which we have come.
