Ubud Readers and Writers Festival-Nandurin Karang Awak-Cultivate the Land Within

Hi Everyone,

A few days into the festival, banners started to appear and on the Anhera Hotel, a banner with the Lost Sister appeared, which was very moving for Malcolm and I. We really wished Anneke had been there to see…

Secondly I am full of admiration and love for your sweet mother. She suffered all this and she has not an ounce of bitterness or self pity in her entire being. No wonder you felt compelled to get her story down. Thankyou for allowing me to read this remarkable book - I feel quite…
