Tindog Tacloban: Rise Up Tacloban

The author’s experience as a volunteer following the devastating effects of Typhoon Yolanda on Tacloban has inspired this gripping tale of tragedy, love and desperation. A stunning debut! – Peter Lock

This is a thrilling read, inspired by the author’s experiences gained when she was a volunteer after the typhoon hit. A must read novel from this exciting new author. It is November 2013 and Typhoon Yolanda, the strongest tropical cyclone ever recorded, has just struck Tacloban in the Philippines. A local family is caught up in the devastating aftermath and has to fight for survival. One of the surviving daughters, 11 year old Lika Faye, is abducted by child traffickers and dragged into the sleazy world of webcam sex and worse. Will her family be able to save the child from a terrible end? – Marc Moss

In the aftermath of the fiercest typhoon on record to hit land, banners bearing the words Tindog Tacloban started to appear all over the city. Meaning Rise Up Tacloban, they were a testament to the determination and resilience of the Filipino people as they tried to rebuild their shattered lives.

For many, things would never be the same:

Izel Sombilon watched in horror as two of his children were ripped from his arms and swept away by the huge storm waves

Eleven year old Lika Faye was plunged into the sordid underworld of Webcam Child Sex Tourism.

For Helen Gable volunteering in the typhoon ravaged area was a chance for her to come to terms with her own personal tragedy.
