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.
