The Cuckoo’s Egg is the emotional, sometimes shocking, yet incredibly inspirational life journey of Emma.
Based on real life events of the author, Anna Morten, Emma’s tale explores extreme emotional depths as she overcomes the trauma of family rejection, abandonment, sexual abuse, life-threatening health challenges, and poverty.
Born into the chaos of post-war East Germany, Emma lives a despondent childhood and her quest to ﬁnd meaning and happiness in life becomes increasingly difﬁcult as she tries to break out of her repressive circumstances.
From falling into the grasp of Russian militant soldiers and making a daring escape from the other side of the Berlin Wall, to the restrictions imposed after marrying into an inﬂuential Islamic family, to her astounding personal liberation, Emma’s extraordinary experiences span from Germany to Africa and Spain, around the world, and ﬁnally to Australia. They offer an eye-opening account of the challenges women can face and overcome no matter where in the world they live.
This honest and heartfelt story is an inspiration to anyone looking to rise above the challenges of life, as Emma discovers the importance of connecting with her spiritual essence, realizing her own potential, and following her dreams.
