By Wheatley, Nadia
Born in Australia in 1949, author Nadia Wheatley grew up with a sense of the mystery of her parents' marriage.

After her mother's death, the ten-year-old began writing down the stories her mother had told her-of a Cinderella-like childhood, followed by an escape into a career as an army nurse in Palestine and Greece, and as an aid-worker in the refugee camps of post-war Germany.
