“The Promised Land”
Loretta was forced into an arranged marriage to a much older man who she did not love, by her strict Italian father. She suffered under his abusive control until World War II intervened and the handsome Italian Prisoner of War arrived on their farm in The Promised Land, NSW, Australia.
Their story of emotional conflict and forbidden love unfolded, and a child was born. When the war ended and he returned to Italy he made her a promise to return for her and their child. But her fairytale did not end the way she had hoped.
This is a story of love, betrayal and courage. Sometimes our destiny has a way of surprising us.
