Abstract
Later tragedies scar Eva's survival story, but nothing can dent her will to survive and to meet whatever challenge is thrown in her path. An inspiring autobiography, despite its horrors, this is a book that deserves to endure. Pamela Hardy’s "Point of Departure" might be described as a contemporary story of survival and discovery of the self through challenging and difficult circumstances. Frustrated by a failed marriage and the lack of opportunities common to her generation, the author, in her fifties, apparently decided to test her independence by backpacking around the world for a year.
