Description

div> Why does poverty live next to wealth? Why does one school child have books and the other sitting next to her does not? Why does one come to school in a big car with a new uniform and posh bag while the one sitting next just looks on with envy, wondering when she can have the same? Why is it so easy for one whilst the other struggles? This was me as a young girl in Penang! Then everything changed when I was in Bradford, England; what and who made the amazing changes? This is a touching and-I hope-amusing book based on my life events, from the unspoilt, tropical paradise that was Penang in the 60s to the cold, autumn, grey London in the 70s, onto the post war St. Lukes Hospital Bradford as a student nurse and then a midwife. Alone, in foreign surroundings, with strange English foods and even stranger Yorkshire accents, my deep fear, anxieties, and insecurities were highlighted. Moving upwards both in career and location to Bonnie Dundee, Scotland then to the bright northern lights of Aberdeen throughout the 80s and 90s shaped my identity with an ongoing relationship with Jesus. Finally, I returned to Malaysia to live in one of those big houses that I enviously walked past as a child! You are made for wonders to possess your promises! This book will reveal and confirm that you are a precious jewel! You are His treasure of great value; that valuable pearl of great price!
