When two people fall in love, get married, have children and build a life together - is it not natural to believe that that bond should last forever till „death us do part"?
Do the people who take this vow really understand what it means - "to have and to hold from this day forward in sickness and in health..."? How much are they prepared to invest in a marriage - an institution created by God himself?
How much can the human spirit endure in the face of great adversity and how far is one capable of suffering humiliation before it becomes impossible not to break under the weight of it all?
The Johnston family is an example of a well-to-do family in the contemporary world we live in. How will the members of this family deal with the great adversity they will face? Will they stay true to the creed of honor and love which ruled in this family, or.....?
The story is vividly told in a sensitive, realistic way which will make the reader become one with the characters and experience the trials and tribulations Lillian Johnston has to endure on her path of self discovery.

About the Author

I was born as the eldest of four daughters into an idyllic world. My father adored us and as his nickname was Charlie, we became known as Charlie's Angels.
I had parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, cousins by the dozens and the grownups outside of my family all behaved like responsible people who sheltered and protected children. Divorce and drug addiction were words I became familiar with as a student. All that was required of us children were to behave, to show respect to fellow humans, not to smoke or to drink, to study well and to play and behave as children should. Despite all of these rules, we still managed to disbehave and be mischievous as children should be.

The motto by which my family lived and which I firmly believe in myself is that: No man is an island; we are all connected and the good of this world will only come to be when we stand together and help and support each other. To live and to let live.
I believe that everything is possible so long as one believes that it is possible. I believe in God and in the good in mankind.
Having had such a great childhood and being a mother since twenty years, my heart is filled with great sorrow when I see and hear in what misery the children of this world have to live. I want to contribute to making life better for as many children as I can. To offer them education, a warm place to sleep, enough food to eat and caring people to watch over them so that they will be able to grow up happier and to make informed choices about their own lives. The safeguarding of the future of our planet and all mankind lies in the education of the children of today who will be the leaders of tomorrow.
