Little Lois Davis barely knew her mother. In an orphanage at the age of three months, her childhood featured too many institutions and not enough nurturing. Determined that her past wouldn’t decide her future, Lois changed her name and, as Donna, became an international model and the mother of two beautiful children. After the break-up of her marriage, she became involved with a charismatic young man who asked her to do the seemingly unthinkable – smuggle drugs into Australia from India and risk everything she had worked so hard for. Emotionally vulnerable, Donna reluctantly agreed and found herself a criminal. Pregnant and alone, she would nearly have to pay the most terrible price of all – the loss of her children.
