By Dr. Edna Joyce Santos

This book is an epic saga of a woman’s journey to overcome all adversities and still remained steadfast and true to her faith despite all the challenges she faced in her life. She has experienced love, betrayal and financial ruin.

Her courage is admirable and her strength is incomparable. Her trust and faith in God have never wavered and have kept her from falling apart completely.

Her story needs to be told for a lot of expatriates have passed through almost the same phases as they chose to leave their families behind to seek greener pasture abroad.

It is her desire that the status of Filipinos abroad be extolled and given due recognition for their commendable contribution to their adopted countries.

Her story spans three decades … a roller coaster ride of unimaginable struggles. The lessons she has learned along the way and the wisdom she has gained would be passed on to generations to come with the advent of this book.

The names of the characters and locations had been changed to preserve the privacy of the people involved. This is based on a true story.

May Allah bless us always.
