A true story of love, loss, and the mother-daughter relationship across generations, this biography describes Rebecca Huntley’s search for her maternal grandmother’s story. Following the death of her Italian Nonna, Huntley discovers that there was much unknown about the kind-hearted, quiet individual she thought she knew. With evocative stories and tender honesty, Huntley explores the young life of the woman who cooked masterfully and embroidered daily and those of the men and women in her family from Northern Queensland during World War II. In the process, old issues with her own mother are awakened and the concept of what it really means to be a mother is contemplated.

I hadn't realised the Italians had come to Australia well before World War II.2013年5月26日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
I heard Rebecca Huntley on the radio and decided to hunt up her book. Was so glad I did. Living in SA I've always known about the Loveday Camp on the Murray where so many of the Italian men ended up during WWII. It was a very easy to read book, that I didn't want to put down!

An insight into the experiences of Italian migrants in the cane fields of Queensland early in the 20th century and later their internment during the second world war as enemy aliens told as the author seeks to discover more about her family history.

Love stories about true people in remarkable situations. It is a part of our history that we mostly don't know about. A very interesting read.
