Synopsis

Teresa was only four-years-old when the bombs began to fall. Over the next three years her island home of Malta became the most heavily bombed place of WW2. With her country destroyed and starvation rife, Teresa’s father decides to leave for Australia, to its promise of peace and a brighter future.

Inspired by Deb’s own family’s story of survival, Teresa is the latest in a new, exciting series about young kids who leave their homes to make a new life in Australia.
