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.

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