Ninety-year-old Mitra has much history behind her. Young Sofija cannot grasp what her great-grandmother Mitra is telling her about life when Mitra was a young girl, growing up in a village back in Yugoslavia. These two are as far apart in their ways of thinking as they are in age.
Inspired by a true story, Baba's Story encompasses many people and a vast geographic area, revealing differences in culture, time, and situation. Through storytelling, and a little humour, readers will experience the growing bond between Canadian-born Sofija and her great-grandmother, the keeper of Sofija's family history.
