Having lost the love of my life and feeling my world had ended, I asked God, “Lord, is this all you have for my life?” and two weeks later, Canon Andrew White, the vicar of Baghdad, asked me to ring. I didn’t know him but I rang and he asked me if I had heard of Saddam Hussein and explained that the judge who sentenced him to death, minster of justice for Iraq, Mr Raouf was coming to Spires Hospital Southampton for an operation and God told him I was to host him and his family. I thought it was windup, but I was to find out it was true…and this began a journey and friendships that are still ongoing ten years later. Read the story and find out what happened.

    All I can say is Wow!! I couldn't put the book down and really enjoyed how you added testimonies and scripture to the story.

    So lovely to have more of an insight into knowing you also.

    Thank you again for the amazing book and well done Elaine.

    At least I have a better understanding of all the surnames you are known by too ha.

    It brought to mind when I said to you that I was anxious about driving by myself to Leicester to see you at your relatives’ memorial.

    Your words to me were “but Yvonne you won't be on your own will you”. Your journeys certainly put all that into perspective.

    Very moving, insightful and interesting.

    God bless x
