This Is My Song

by Richard Yaxley

In the 1940s, musician Rafael Ullmann is sent to a Nazi concentration camp. In the 1970s, Annie Ullmann lives a lonely life on a Canadian prairie. Three decades later, in Australia, Joe Hawker is uncertain about himself and his future—until he discovers a song, written by his grandfather many years ago. This is my Song crosses three continents and time-line, and charts the need for each of us to find our own music—and sing that music with conviction and grace to those whom we most love.
