In 1982, Sally Morgan travelled back to her grandmother's birthplace. What started as a tentative search for information about her family, turned into an overwhelming emotional and spiritual pilgrimage. My Place is a moving account of a search for truth into which a whole family is gradually drawn, finally freeing the tongues of the author's mother and grandmother, allowing them to tell their own stories.

A tale of a long hard road to understanding
The story of My Place was not always enjoyable as it made me look into my own heart and soul and see what fears and sins lie there. But the overall enjoyment of listening to the book was what I can only describe as fulfilling as the story unfolded into a still uncertain but better enlightened future for a young woman and her family.
My place reminds me of another Australian auto biography "A Fortunate Life" by Albert Facey, a tale of overcoming hardship through great strength of character.
The reader gave a wonderful performance, I could see and feel the story through her voice.
A tale of a long hard, but fruitful road, to understanding herself and her family in a country afraid to face its history.
