Product Overview

A holiday in Italy is an exciting adventure for fourteen year old Maria Sartori who is half Australian and half Italian. Rome is wonderful. Lucca is romantic and Siena's famous Palio horse race is wildly exciting.

But Maria misses Australia, its space and freedom and worse she suspects that her father didn't come to Italy just for a holiday, to see his family, or even on business. Who is Carla?

Maria finds that her Italian roots run deeper than she realised. The family story involves her as well as her Italian aunts and cousins and relations. It is they and especially Lorenzo who help her to understand her father better and to make the decision which will both change her life and enrich it.
