Doreen Salmon was born into a working-class family in 1935. She grew up in the industrial town of Nelson in Lancashire, England where both parents worked in the cotton mills and children brought themselves up. Losing her mother at the tender age of five, Doreen then suffered at the hands of a cruel stepmother.She went on to make a career for herself in the army where she served on active duty in Cyprus. On returning home she fell in love with a married man. She went on to have two children with him at a time when society frowned upon unmarried mothers and had to bear the stigma of being an outcast. It was at this time that she found a savior in Jesus. This was not only to change her life but became the source from which she drew strength to face the tragedies that were to unfold. When her son was attacked and left for dead she found herself facing a mother's worst nightmare, testing her strength and resolve beyond reason. Some years later when her son received further injuries rendering him completely disabled she found herself incapable of carrying on, saying “I can't do this!” Not only did she do it but she did it with style! Along with her husband and daughter she overcame every obstacle in her path and brought her son home, where he remains today. When she was given a typewriter for Christmas she said, “What can I write about?” Her daughter replied, “When God made you, mum, he broke the mould. Write your life story.”
