This is the bestselling autobiography of one of New Zealand's most remarkable women, taking her up to 1980. Sonja Davies battled numerous personal setbacks, including an unhappy early marriage, the death of the father of her first child, years spent in and out of hospital combatting TB and the death of her son. In the face of such disasters, she made many impressive achievements, including founding and becoming the first president of the NZ Association of Child Care Centres and becoming the first woman elected to the executive of the FOL. Her indomitable spirit and determination to fight for what she believes in -- including women's rights and world peace -- make this autobiography compelling reading.
