Once upon a time, a little girl came from Hungary to Canada. Over her life she had many experiences, both joyful and sad. She lived a hard life, farming and raising her daughter and working at any job that came to hand. As she grew old, she wanted her story told so her grandchildren and great-grandchildren could read it, but she knew she could not write it herself. One day, her good friend Nora came to visit, and when she heard of Theresa’s wish, she decided to write the story for Theresa. This book is the result of that decision.
