"Giuliana's personality and zest for life is contagious. She is

A truly colourful and unique person filled with love and
inspiration for others.
Giuliana is the true story of an inspiring immigrant. This
book transports the reader in an instant to many different places through
the eyes of a simple woman recalling personal experiences and images. It
begins with vivid childhood memories in Recoaro Italy during the 1930s and
spans to the present day. Some inexplicable spiritual incidents that occur
through life's journey are also documented.
Giuliana boarded a ship in Italy in 1957 and made the long
journey to Australia at the age of 24 to meet the husband she married by
proxy, a man she had met only once at her Grandparents' house. He left
Italy for a new life in Australia two days after meeting her. They
communicated through love letters. But the relationship was not what she
had hoped for when she arrived in Australia to meet him after four years.
And so her life story unfolded with experiences, relationships, children,
accomplishments and disappointments all told through her eyes. She started
several business ventures including a Nursery and Restaurant, a Tobacco
Plantation and a Gold Mine.
Giuliana is an award-winning Salami maker, Poet and wine
maker and well-known to the Italian community. Giuliana is well-known for
her delicious authentic recipes and she shares 40 of her best in this
unique book. It is a cook book full of love encompassing a woman's life.
Giuliana delves into various relationships seen through
the eyes of a child and sibling, from friend to lover, from woman to
mother. This is all beautifully narrated and a joy to read.
