From the war-torn streets of London to the exotic shores of the Orient, this is one woman's extraordinary story: an emotional rollercoaster that sweeps the reader along on a breathless voyage through...

Above all, it is a tale of survival, of the constancy of love between a mother and her children, and ultimately of happiness regained.
