Inspired by true events, the novel brings to life an epic tale of survival from the world’s strongest typhoon ever recorded in history, Typhoon Haiyan, where it weaves a human story that would stir hearts and touch lives, combining intense drama, love, and faith as it entreats reader’s on how far can one human being go to mend broken lives. This creative non-fiction is one of the greatest survival stories ever told. The novel looks into the humanity of the typhoon survivors as they dealt with the slow response of aid and rescue. Abandoned and isolated, they began to depend on the resilience of one another as they live off the land without food, water and medical services even in the face of insurmountable odds. What could possibly have gone wrong?

About the Author:

Albert Singh Veloso MullÚs was born and raised in Tacloban City to an Indian father and a Filipina mother of Portuguese descent. His father, Alberto Singh MullÚs, had a great influence on the young novelist, and was his source of culture and art that would later form the pillar of philosophy for the budding writer. The mother of the author, Susan Veloso, is from the Veloso clan whose roots were traced to the Galician noble Diego Veloso who served the crown of Queen Isabella I of Spain or known as the La Catolica. The Portuguese explorer migrated to the Philippines sometime in the 16th century during the height of the galleon trade. Their Philippine descendants still carry to this day the Official Coat of Arms granted to them by King Alfonso. Albert or "Alby" or "Bert" to his friends spent eight years in the seminary to study Philosophy and Theology subjects. He later joined the Augustinian congregation to become an apprentice for the religious order. He later left after serving a self-imposed regency, ending up as an English teacher for an international academy in Manila. Since then, he worked on different companies serving as an English consultant. Over the years, he dived into his passion for technology to take up short courses on the subject. He has a firm belief that "education thru technology" is the future. He has one daughter, Breanna Sofia, whom he "loves very much more than anything else in the world." He lives to this day in Tacloban to go back to the quiet life of the country, writing and teaching during his spare time while at the same time involved in a small technology outfit he helped co-found with fellow IT friends. His hobbies include discovering the country's local sights and sounds. He loves pingpong, movie marathons and food tripping. He dreams of putting up a social fund someday to help the orphans of Typhoon Haiyan.
