Reseña del editor

"If you think that surviving an airplane crash will get you a free pass for the rest of your life, think again." When young Annette Herfkens, one of the few female international bond traders on Wall Street and her fiancé boarded Vietnam Airlines flight 474 in Ho Chi Minh City, they were just two passengers headed for a romantic getaway, unaware of the fateful moment that would shatter their dreams forever. The plane crashed into a mountaintop, leaving Annette trapped in the Vietnamese jungle as the sole survivor. What followed was an incredible story of survival, mystery and higher spirit. In this unflinching tale of life, Annette describes how she survived eight days alone in the jungle with only rainwater to sustain her. Thirteen years after the crash, Annette returned to Vietnam to climb the mountain, shedding new light on mysteries that had lingered since the crash. Through flashbacks Annette reveals how she has used the lessons learned in the Vietnamese jungle to celebrate her autistic son in the jungle of New York's Upper East Side. This inspiring book breaks as many boundaries as the protagonist herself. A keen observer, Annette writes with frank and acerbic humor about loss, love, resilience, and spirituality in a fresh, down-to-earth manner. Her book gives us the ultimate insight into mind and heart of a true survivor.

Biografía del autor

Annette Herfkens is the sole survivor of a 1992 airplane disaster in Vietnam. Sudden turbulence and the subsequent crash took the life of her fiancé, Willem van der Pas. He was her best friend, college sweetheart, and soul mate. Annette was born in Venezuela from Dutch parents. She was raised in The Netherlands, where she studied at Leiden University. After completing an internship in Santiago de Chile, she became an executive trainee for ING Bank which stationed her in New York and London. She then moved to Banco Santander in Madrid. She was promoted to Managing Director and seven years later sent to New York, where she currently lives with her family. In Turbulence, Annette finally tells her story to the world after years of resisting media attention. As one of the few female international bankers of her time Annette broke down professional barriers; by writing this book she overcomes her personal barriers as well. As a banker she was known for composing the shortest memos possible; yet in Turbulence she writes poetically, with both depth and humor, about love, survival and acceptance of what cannot be changed.
