About the Book

Life’s Fight, Love’s Might is a controversial true story about Lorna, a courageous determined Australian woman whose life was ravaged by the betrayal of her family, her employers, the Christian church, the judicial system and sanctioned abuse by the state and federal governments.

Lorna stood alone against the world that’s until she meets Rod, a surfie who sweeps her off her feet. Unfortunately, their fervent love also feels the smack of betrayal, which nearly destroys them both, but ultimately they stand united with trust, love and loyalty.

When Rod enlists, Lorna becomes an excellent army wife. She learns how to compromise, because the army must come first. She becomes independent and resourceful while her soldier is away, supporting him all the way up the ranks to Warrant Office.

Rod’s postings take Lorna and their two children to Sydney, Papua New Guinea, Canberra and Melbourne.

Lorna finds each posting is fraught with its own kind of agony, with Papua New Guinea being the worst of all. She survives unbelievable traumas, which befall her and her family. Then she faces the failures of the Australian Defence Force and the Department of Veterans’ Affairs. To the Australian people these two systems appear to be functioning at an optimum for the serving members of the ADF, veterans’ and their families respectively, but it only appears that they are.

Lorna also gives accounts of how the leadership within the Christian community believes it is above the law of the land, and how the judicial system aides the church’s betrayal of trust.

In the end, Lorna’s resilience and strength wins through to overcome the impossible, leading her to write this inspiring book.
