a novel by Ally McCormick
“I just finished reading your book and it was phenomenal, outstanding and utterly heartbreaking! My mother also loved it. She said at times it was uncomfortable for her to read but she couldn’t put it down.” A Marie Silver, editor, Pilcrow & Dagger Literary Journal
Broadly based on a true story, Her Road From War is a novel set during WW2. With the Japanese Imperial Army on Singapore’s doorstep, one woman and her toddler are evacuated from the doomed State on the very last surviving evacuee ship. Torpedoed, the ship limps into an uncertain future, while alone in a man’s world, our heroine must find the courage to survive. Just as she rebuilds her life and is beginning to feel hope again, the mat is pulled out from under her, forcing her to make the most haunting decision of her life.
