In conversation with renowned local talk-show host and book maven Jenny Crwys-Williams, Morris told the story of how she was first introduced to the book’s protagonist, Lale Sokolov, who took her on a journey she had never imagined.

She started writing Sokolov’s story as a screenplay, but after various hurdles, decided that she would self-publish it as a book, which is when she caught the attention of one of Australia’s largest publishers.

The audience came away with a sense of knowing that history is in safe hands because of gifted authors like Morris who ensure that these vital stories are not lost.
