A Breathless Odyssey
Path to An Asian DestinyBook - 2016
Sometimes, with the benefit of hindsight, the most convoluted and unexpected of journeys can ring with destiny. When Alan Cane, a young professional with a promising career, is suddenly struck down with tuberculosis in 1975 after a business trip overseas, he is confined to an Edwardian-era sanatorium in Southern England. Ostracised from all that is familiar, Alan fights depression and struggles to find meaning and purpose. Upon his release after six months - drained of confidence and minus half a lung - Alan finds himself unemployable and daunted by the simplest of tasks. Persevering against the odds, Alan is suddenly offered new life and exciting opportunities when he is engaged to spearhead a business expansion into South East Asia. An engrossing tale of despair and triumph, from surviving a terminal illness, to unemployment, to business success, adventure and true love in the Orient. If you have ever felt hopeless, been challenged by adversity or were determined to succeed in spite of great obstacles, this is a book that will inspire you to believe in happy endings.
