Description of this Electronic Book

To find freedom, you must leave behind everything you've ever known. It is 1943. During the war, you rescue and hide an Australian airman near your small Italian village. He tells you that you can be anything you dream of - but those dreams are fast slipping away. As you make the leap for a new life, you find yourself facing life-and-death choices at every turn. Can you overthrow the curse of bad luck that has plagued your family and prove yourself in a new land? You'll be asked to stand up to bullies, stage a mutiny, and make your contribution to one of the greatest engineering projects the world has ever seen. At every turn, the choice is yours. How far will you go for freedom?
