Yvonne is a retired school teacher with specialised experience
working at Sovereign Hill and the Art Gallery of Ballarat as an
Education Officer over the past 22 years.
She has recently completed a Ph.D. to research her Chinese connections with the Tong Way family, covering four generations of their life in Ballarat.
The story is about her uncle Joe who came here from China as a child and it tells of his many difficulties settling into his new life and provides young readers with understanding and insights into the struggle for acceptance when faced with being so different.
"A fascinating historical account of a young boy's difficulty and hardship. Showcases triumph over adversity with a happy ending for all..." Peter Indie Book Reviewer
