Unforgotten: Finding Hope in Bangkok Prisons
Unforgotten: Finding Hope in Bangkok Prisons by Heather Luna-Rose
While backpacking ten years ago through Thailand with her young daughter, Heather Luna-Rose visited a fellow Canadian in Bangkok’s Bangkwang Prison, stumbling into what became her soul’s calling. This passionate humanitarian now spends many months each year bringing emotional support to incarcerated men from all over the world who are suffering isolation and loneliness in Bangkok’s infamously hellish prisons. In this gripping memoir, Heather Luna-Rose reveals through raw journal entries and letters the personal challenges and struggles of sustaining hope in her one-woman unpaid mission to support forgotten men.
A gripping page-turner, the book is divided between Canada and Thailand, juxtaposing these very disparate worlds she tries to reconcile in her ongoing mission to create a financially and emotionally sustainable life of humanitarian work.
