The Aussie from Down Under, Margot Finke, has done it again! Down Under Calling is a beautifully crafted story of bridging the generation gap and ocean separation through good old-fashioned letter writing and sharing stories of one’s youth.
At the request of his mother, Andy Frazer is reluctant in having to write a letter to his Australian Grandma Rose. It was bad enough his family was forced to move from their spacious home to a cramped apartment. Something about downsizing at his father’s job led to this. Along with not being allowed to purchase any more video games he now had to write a letter to some old lady he doesn’t even remember. What could he possibly write about?
What starts out as a burden quickly turns into a true labor of love. The letter writing becomes a glorious distraction that serves as the propeller of an exploding imagination and curiosity. What Andy learns along the way is invaluable. Journey along with Andy, Grandma Rose, and Andy’s closest friend Kelly as their lives become intertwined despite the separation of an ocean.
The humorous letter exchanges will have the reader turning the pages as quick as lightening. Author, Margot Finke includes a glossary of Australian words for easy reference.
