Inhaltsangabe: A Passionate Quest to Find Answers for Generations of Defeated Mothers. Anne's story is one of lost generations. She was abandoned by her mother at ten months of age, and from then on she lived a life of abuse and gross neglect in the Mercy Orphanage for the Poor, and at the hands of her Lebanese father's extended family. In the Coory family's mind, Anne's greatest shortcoming was her demonised Italian mother, Doreen Frandi, and for this reason she was treated as an imbecile and sexually harassed from childhood to her teens. Added to that, Anne was separated from her two brothers while living in the orphanage according to strict rules of gender segregation when boys turned five. After marrying in her teens and giving birth to four children in quick succession, Anne struggled to come to terms with her tormented past while at the same time making a vain attempt at living a normal life. Eventually Anne's marriage failed and she barely managed to avoid a mental breakdown. Two decades later, Anne embarked on what would be fifteen years of research and travel to find her Italian relatives and in the process tried to make some sense of why so many women in her Lebanese and Italian families became defeated mothers.
Über den Autor: Growing up in an orphanage and raised by strict Dominican nuns didn?t prepare Anne well for the realities of life. But overcoming the continual threat of fire and brimstone, she escaped in her teens into an early marriage and four children. She was a homemaker for nine years, during which time she dabbled in unskilled work including waitressing and cleaning. She began developing a career as an interior decorator, where she excelled in the creativity and service aspects of the job. Her career blossomed as her marriage declined. She moved on to run a jointly owned successful café/catering business for three years with her new partner, gained a university degree, and then embarked on a nineteen-year career in the real estate industry in New Zealand and Australia. She now lives in Melbourne with her partner Paul, without any threat of burning in eternal fires. She enjoys the vibrant life that wonderful city offers, and her duties as an energetic and slightly mad grandmother. For more information and photos, view Anne?s blog at: frandi.wordpress.com
