'With a vision of life under palm trees, Lolo Houbein left the Holland of her war-troubled childhood to live in Southeast Asia, Papua New Guinea and Australia. Her spiritual journeying has been guided by intuition as she searches for an ancestry so scattered and elusive that fact and imagination mingle in the telling. Belief in the relatedness of all human beings has led to her meeting people of many races, including the Dalai Lama.
In 1988 Wrong Face in the Mirror won the Dirk Hartog Literary Award for literary exploration of migration experiences, and her novel Walk a Barefoot Road won the ABC Bicentennial Fiction Award.'
