Description

The war is over, but their fight for a new life in Australia is about to begin…

16 yr old Hungarian Elizabeta arrives in Australia in 1954, escaping life as a refugee in post–war Germany.

At the Bonegilla Migrant Camp she becomes friends with three girls and all rush together towards a life that seems full of promise, even as they cope with the legacy of war, the oppressive nature of family tradition and ever present sorrow.

Victoria Purman is a multi-published, award-nominated, Amazon Kindle bestselling author. She has worked in and around the Adelaide media for nearly thirty years as an ABC television and radio journalist, a speechwriter to a Premier, political adviser, editor, media adviser and private sector communications consultant.

Tea, coffe and cake provided.

Copies of Victoria's book will be available to purchase on the night from Matilda Bookshop for $29.99
