When twelve-year-old Metis moves from the traditional world of a Greek island to life in an Australian inner city, she sadly misses her wise, old grandmother.

Notes

  • Dedication: For Larisa
  • Epigraph: To keep the earth on one's roots and find another earth, that is a real miracle. - Marc Chagall
  • Epigraph: The olive tree is truly remarkable. It asks for so little - a few drops of water, a little rocky soil - and it gives so much in return. - Mireille Johnston
