The epic story of a Thai mother's lifelong search for her abducted daughter


Inspired by actual events, Mango Rains is the incredible story of a woman who overcame insurmountable odds while searching for her abducted child. She devoted her life to the impossible task of navigating through a web of deceit, exploitation, and the criminal underworld to drag herself out of obscene circumstances into a better life, and to use her status, and incredible luck, to eventually realize her dreams. This, paralleled with the story of her abducted daughter who was forced to endure heartbreaking tragedies, and experience occasional triumph, often bittersweet, whilst finding her way alone through a similar web of deceit, exploitation, and the criminal underworld, giving the reader an unparalleled look at the hidden world where children disappear without a trace in Asia. At times this book will bring you to tears, both tears of tragedy and tears of triumph. This is a story of love and inspiration, a story of how a mother never gave up hope of finding the daughter she lost.
