AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Tessa is a first-generation Greek teenager growing up in Sydney. Her migrant parents are as strict as their parents before them, but this is 1970s Australia and it is hard for a young girl to be left out of all the social contacts of her peers and conform to a rigidly sexist code of behaviour. University brings relative freedom, but when Tessa falls in love with her English professor and rebels against an arranged marriage, the going gets tough.'
