Over two spellbinding novels, follow the saga of the Soforo family as they flee their Italian city of Fiume at the end of World War II and struggle to put their lives back together.
Published by Odyssey Books
In Port of No Return, the family loses everything when their house is bombed by the Allies and their city is taken by neighbouring Yugoslavia. They are left with no choice but to leave their home town. To get out safely, Ettore and Contessa must separate.
In Wanderers No More, follow Martino, the youngest of the sons, who must overcome a devastating setback, if he is to realise an almost impossible dream.
A war-time debt is owing, love is lost and re-found and, amongst the backdrop of a vibrant yet seedy Kings Cross in Australia, the past comes back to haunt them all. Don’t miss this series that explores post-war struggles and 1950s’ Australian migrant history in a way that is warm and uplifting – and at times, tragic.

What readers said about Wanderers No More
“. . .this is one of the best books I’ve read this year. I hope Michelle Saftich continues to write novels with heart that celebrate family life and the bond of friendship. If you like immigrant stories, this one is not to be missed.” (Goodreads reviewer, Nov 2017)
