“In 1939, a frightened, homesick girl of 13 from impoverished rural Italy, arrived in an Australia that was recovering from the Depression. Emma’s story brings together two cultures: the deeply conservative and traditional Abruzzi and Anglo Saxon Western Australia. Emma weathered cultural shock and refused to be discouraged by ignorance and bigotry.”
