Homeland Lost
Previously Published Book

As Russian tanks roared past Ale’s parents’ farm in Lithuania, her happy childhood turned into a nightmare.
After the fear, destruction and displacement of the Second World War, Ale and her family emigrate to Australia. Here, after many incidents both humourous and confronting, they make a new home.
48 years later she returned from Australia to search for her lost childhood.
