Who Knows Tomorrow
By

Rating
Born in Spain and raised by a struggling single mother, Lisa Lovatt-Smith became an editor at British Vogue at nineteen, the youngest in Conde Nast history. She helped launch Spanish Vogue and partied across Europe with celebrities, fashion designers, photographers, and supermodels. By her thirties, Lisa has her dream career and a glamorous life in Paris, but when her adopted daughter Sabrina is expelled from school, Lisa takes her to volunteer in a Ghanaian orphanage in the hopes of getting her back on track. What she discovers there changes both their lives for good. Appalled by the deplorable conditions she finds, Lisa moves to Ghana permanently and founds OAfrica, dedicating her personal resources to reuniting hundreds of Ghanaian children with their families and spearheading a drive to shut down corrupt orphanages. On this unforgettable journey, Lisa confronts death threats, malaria, arson, and heartbreaking poverty; she also discovers truly inspiring children trapped in limbo by a moneymaking scheme bigger than she ever imagined. Who Knows Tomorrow is the engaging, frank, and often surprisingly funny story of one amazing woman who has traveled the globe in search of meaningful connection. Although to Lisa her story will always be about the children, it's also a touching celebration of a woman who is talented, generous, and unfailingly courageous.

Reviews

"Lisa's adventures in West Africa are a powerful testimony to what we could all achieve if we truly become change makers. The work she does is so inspiring to me, and her book tells a fascinating story of struggle over adversity few of us could imagine." - Rachel Roy, Fashion Designer "Lisa's journey, her crossing worlds, made me realize that saving lives is just there within a hand's reach. We live in a world of possibilities and we each choose our own path. A story that deserves to be read." - Margarita Missoni, Fashion Designer "Worlds and motives collide inconveniently, touchingly, and passionately... In what reads like an emotional thriller, hard won victories break through the clay and lives are forever transformed." - Nana Brew-Hammond, Journalist and Author of Powder Necklace "Everybody ought once in her life to change it radically in order to be useful on earth. Lisa did it totally. The amazing thing is that we admire her but she never makes us feel guilty. I have two words for her: Joy and Generosity. She is an honour to Humanity." - Ines de la Fressange, French Style Icon, Designer and Author
