For the first time, “The Journey of the Lost Boys” offers readers a chronological timeline of the epic journey taken by these children, beginning in their rural villages of Southern Sudan and ending with their arrival as young men to the United States. Narrated through the voice of Joan Hecht, one of their American mentors, whom they lovingly call “mom” or “Mama Joan;” “The Journey of the Lost Boys” is a compelling story of courage, faith and the sheer determination to survive by a group of young orphaned boys. Because of Ms. Hecht’s personal relationship with them, she is able to portray their story in a way that most famous reporters and authors cannot. In addition to her extensive research of the political and historical events surrounding this long lasting civil war, are the heart-rending personal stories of the boys themselves.

About the Author

Joan currently lives in Jacksonville, Fl. with her husband and their two young children. Although this is her first novel, she vows that it will certainly not be her last! Retired from a career in sales and marketing, she has over the past thirty years, worked periodically as a professional singer, performing across the nation and on television and radio. Although she no longer travels in her singing profession due to obligations at home, Joan continues to sing professionally in local recording studios and also in her church.

Because of her deep love for the Lost Boys, it became Joan’s dream to establish a foundation, dedicated to supporting the health and educational needs of the Lost Boys living in America and Africa. In the summer of 2004, her dream came true when she founded the ALLIANCE FOR THE LOST BOYS OF SUDAN, a 501c3 foundation, through which numerous boys in Jacksonville have received college scholarships and medical treatment. To learn more about her foundation, please visit their web site at allianceforthelostboys.com.
