Visit the website for The girl who left and find out more about the book, author Debra Gavranich, and the journey of her mother Marija from Croatia to the canefields. The book is the migrant story of Australia, of courageous individuals taking the biggest risk of their lives often with little or no English. Their determination and hard work enable them to live with their sacrifices and overcome the profound loneliness of homesickness. The result is the rich diversity of our modern multicultural nation.
