About the Book:
The first is a proud matriarch who believes honouring family is worth any sacrifice.
The second is born into a revolution and travels the world, still scarred by her childhood demons.
The third soars to breathtaking heights on the world stage, a mother's selfless love beneath her wings.
The Diary of Katy Yehonala brilliantly evokes another time and place, laying bare its drama and beauty in haunting landscapes and vivid portraits of unforgettable women, so exquisitely narrated that they resonate long after the final page is turned.
"... an immersive and gripping book that resonates deeply with the reader. Throughout, the characterisation is strong, memorable and nuanced suited to the intricate, powerful, compelling narrative." Rebecca Black, AM
About the Author:
Robert grew up in a small English village, the repository of 1000 years of history engraved on the tombstones of its Norman Church. Without mobile phones, TV or the Internet, he made up stories.
Later in life, he found himself a clearance diver in the labyrinthine, murky waterways of the Mekong Delta, dismantling booby traps during the Vietnam War and receiving two bravery awards. He spent much time in Asia, and his storytelling is inspired by his life experiences living around the world and from random meetings with strangers.
Robert’s writing paints pictures of remarkable, headstrong women set against backstories of the significant issues of our times. His vivid storytelling combines sharp-witted dialogue and meticulous research to bring our human struggles to life. A citizen of the world, his love of exotic places, their people and their love stories brings readers an evocative sense of time and place.
