The Silver Tea Service is a memoir by Judy Campbell that began as a quest to solve a century-old mystery in her family. Along the way, it unearths a South African heritage of which she had previously been unaware, and from which she is able to make sense of her own migration from South Africa to Australia as a young adult. The journey takes her along the darker corridors of her youth, and of the history of her country of origin, yielding unexpected revelations of identity and, ultimately, resolution of longstanding wounds from the past.
