Summary
"Born in Poland in 1921 Janina Milek was transported with her family to Siberia in the freezing winter of 1940. She worked hard in the labour camps for nearly two years until the changing fortunes of the war offered relative freedom. The followed eight years as a refugee, in camps in Uzbekistan, Persia, Northern Rhodesia and Tanganyika." "At every stage of the journey members of her family fell away - perished, were left behind, took other roads. In 1950 Janina arrived in Western Australia, alone." "When Janina entered Tim Chappell's young life they formed an instant bond. Tim has interwoven Janina's extraordinary story with poignant, often amusing cameos of the Janina he knew as he was growing up."--BOOK JACKET
