Maria P Frino’s The Decision They Made is an historical family saga set in Italy, Russia and Australia. Although it’s historical fiction, it was inspired by her own family members’ brave decision to come to a country they knew very little about.
Maria says, “Amelia and Simona, the two women who make the decision are based on my grandmothers.”
ABOUT THE BOOK
Two women make a decision during WWII. They keep this decision secret for 40 years. When Larissa and Alexey uncover the secret there are consequences for all the family.
Maria says, “I wrote this book 25 years ago and then shelved it to look after our two children. The story comes from stories I heard growing up from my parents, aunts and uncles and their friends of how harsh it was living during WWII. The book is fictional, however, there is a basement under my grandmother’s house in Southern Italy.”
