A showgirl – adventurer - whistle-blower changes direction after her heart is stirred when she sees pitiful waifs on the streets of Asia.
In a complete life reversal she gives up her extraordinary life.
Settling down, she marries, and sets out to adopt one child. However, fate steps in and she ends up with six distressed children from four countries.
It becomes much more of a challenge than she imagined, but with a loving husband in the background (A ship’s captain, he was seldom home,) she perseveres.
A story of hope, heartache, and love.
