Frozen Boots

by Thomas Foster


Frozen Boots is a book that ranges widely: from War-time Hungary to the bitter winters of the Soviet Union, from the ruined city of Budapest to the thriving housing developments of Sydney in the fifties and sixties. In his tribute to the power of love, persistence and resilience, Tom Foster, born Fruchter, tells the success story of one Australian family.
