My Escape to Love

Sylvia Duijm

'Sylvia Duijm was not born as Master of Passion, it is what she became when she combined her studies, interests and experience of life'. In an outspoken way, Sylvia Duijm tells of her quest for acknowledgement, love and friendship. As a daughter in an ex-pat family, she moved seven times before she was seven years old, living on four different continents. Her parents' unstable marriage, her temperament, the rules that applied in the various environments, and repeated changes of school resulted in her belonging nowhere. Ultimately not even with herself! At the crossroads of life and death, she fought to rediscover love and acknowledgement in herself. All of which is written powerfully, poignantly and with humour. With this book and her work ( Sylvia Duijm seeks to give others the courage and insight to know that change is possible for everyone.

This is, moreover, a document of its time, about the life of an ex-pat child in the tropics in the 1950s and life at boarding school in the 1960s and 70s. Alongside the crucial factor - love - the three Cs: Calm, Cleanliness and Constancy, prove to be essential. Even in the 21st century!
