    Best malted milk in Queensland

    "They stand around and wave their arms about all talking together!" Comments often made by people about the "Ities" near Queen Victoria Market Melbourne. Thank goodness for these people as we learnt so much from them. Zoe's book goes deeper, to times before WW2 and gives a real insight into the tribulations of being an "enemy alien." The book is served up with flashbacks and is the excellent narrative of a proud family in a new land. You want to find out about work ethics, read this book. You want to find out about pride and happiness, read this book. There is joy, fun and pathos in the book. I felt the love and pain of the family and I highly recommend it as a read. Well done Zoe and yes we had a "Joe" near us who made great malteds.

    Hard to put down

    A well researched story. Readers who lived in this earlier Brisbane, will enjoy walking down memory lane. An interesting family history.
