    Title: Angelina from Stromboli to Durville Island
    Author: HINDMARSH GERARD

    In 1906, at just 16 years of age, Angelina Moleta left the tiny volcanic island of Stromboli off Sicily to travel to an even remoter island on the other side of the world. From the age of eight she had been betrothed to her cousin, Vincenzo Moleta, who was now twice her age and taking her to a new life on DUrville Island in New Zealand. Angelina found solace in an unlikely friendship with a high-born Maori woman, Wetekia Ruruku Elkington, who lived nearby. Together they shared their own struggles, their different culturesand lack of English language; a process that awakened Angelina to her own inner strengths.
