A BIOGRAPHICAL ACCOUNT OF THE WELL-KNOWN BALLARAT TONG WAY FAMILY FROM 1863 ONWARD...
Striving to become accepted, this account is filled with the historical impacts of a family looking to find a home while they deal with the battles of religion and the introduction of the White Australia Policy.
Chinese Roots is an honest and at times confronting telling of the challenges that each generation was faced with, laced with real world impacts of Australian and global history from the 1900s to the modern day.
Australia has been built on the histories of all the people it has raised on its soil… This is one story that matters also.
“A moving and real slice of history told from Yvonne's unique perspective… Wonderful work and such authenticity in the narrative voice of the author…”
Simone, Indie Book reviewer
