The Three Lives of One
Lesley J. Mooney
This story occurs from the 1920s to the 1980s. A little island girl is rescued by missionaries after a tsunami, and this tragic event marks the start of a series of turbulent and challenging years as the girl moves between families and homes, her freedom and safety constantly at risk. Distraught when her adopted parents die, she’s fostered and the father cares too much. After enduring a forced year in a brothel, she learns new talents for nursing, photography and singing which are finally recognised, then she’s assaulted. Joining the Army in 1944 in New Guinea, Japanese forces attack and the girl and some others escape in a plane which is shot down. They are hunted, but rescued by a missionary in a small village, who offers a canoe for escape. Discovering her father too late, but a letter renews her hope, dreams and faith. With the missionary on his island, will true love be enough to overcome a tragic past and an unknown future?
