This is the story of an ordinary woman whose grief - and love - for her only son compelled her to do something extraordinary.
When Margaret Davis''s beloved son Steven was murdered by his own wife, a Philippino former prostitute, she travelled across continents to track down her son''s killers and bring them to justice, and to rescue her grandchildren.
Based on Margaret''s own diaries, notes and emails, this tells not only the awful but utterly compelling story of her perilous journey, but also of how she has dealt with her crippling grief, and how she has striven to save and protect two small children caught up in the violent crossfire of their parents'' failing marriage. It is a tale of two cultures that clashed, with terrible results. And it is a tale of how one mother, faced with her worst nightmare, has fought for justice for her son and some kind of healing for herself and the others left behind after his appalling death.
