Her Adventure and Lesson of a Lifetime
Author mirrors vignettes of her life through the pages of her new book
From her personal experiences that brought her life-changing decisions and eye-opening crossroads, Dr. Jennifer Horton offers readers a glimpse of how she grew up, what she had done, and how those changes and choices made an impact on who she has becomes. In her book, “Lilly’s Choice”, she tells the story of a young girl who will learn about life and love through her adventures with the elephants in Thailand.
Three months after Halia moves from Hawaii to Thailand in the 1980s at the age of nine, she gets caught in the largest flood and landslide Thailand has ever seen. Logging was then banned because deforestation was to blame for the landslides. This changes the fate of the Thai logging elephants that are in captivity, and as Halia helps with the conservation effort, she finds that the life-changing influence the elephants have on her will prepare her for the challenging trials she will experience in adulthood. Her story encompasses military takeover, sex trafficking, and civil unrest. She will also find that real love may require sacrificing everything that she holds dear, even the one person she would do anything for.
