This story is about an immigrant from Holland to South Africa in the 70s, is about the relationship between the young wife and mother to her husband who is a seaman.. Every chapter is full of engaging chatty dialog between her, her two toddlers and the people she interacts with while starting her own leather craft business from home.

From being a desperately unhappy housewife who finds her true calling after healing her psychic wounds, this spiritual odyssey is as deeply pleasurable as it is enlightening.

The book carries an uplifting message for any immigrant in how to survive as a new arrival in a country with no support base and with only a minimal understanding of English.
