Marion Ghent Jose Lau spent the last fifteen years of her life writing her World War II memoirs. Her daughter, the author Cindy Scott, took Marion’s four different manuscripts, merged them into one, and spent hours recording interviews with her mother to fill in some of the stories. Marion also had pages upon pages of handwritten notes, and Cindy compiled those notes, the tapes, and Marion’s manuscripts to write this book.

The desire of Marion’s heart was to publish her story so that others would also understand and experience the grace of God. She titled her book “Never Forsaken,” and Cindy promised her mother before her death that she would complete the book for her. Cindy spent over two years doing just that. Even after hearing portions of it over the years, reading her mother’s story still makes Cindy cry when she realizes the incredible hardships her mother endured, and the incredible faith and courage she had to make it through.

This is Marion’s incredible story, and her testament that with God, we are Never Forsaken.
