The Incredible True Story of the Troubled Family Behind the Darrell Lea Chocolate Empire
ROCKY ROAD is the strange-but-true history of the Darrell Lea family, Australia's own brand of confectionary royalty (like Cadbury in the UK, or Hersheys in the US). This real-life story is part WILLY WONKA AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY, part MY FAMILY AND OTHER ANIMALS.
Aside from being a window into this weird and wonderful family, this is an overview of the crumbling of their confectionary empire. The adopted children left home as teenagers, one becoming a ward of the state and another serving time in prison. All the while, the business was being run into the ground by one of Valerie's despotic sons. The story is bitter and sweet, and while it's (again) very Australian, the eccentricities of the family members do pull it along.
