In 1950, an eight-year-old girl embarked on a journey that would change her life. This memoir follows the life of Antonia Gallo who, like many Calabrians, migrated from war torn Italy to the fertile soils of the Atherton Tablelands in Far North Queensland. A rich tapestry of music and food is woven through the anecdotes as Antonia recalls the hardships she had to overcome to emerge as the woman she became.
“… told in her simple honest style, Antonia will take the reader on the incredible and cultural journey of her life.”
