Miss Fortune

Memoir Miss Fortune is a rollicking account of a woman coming of age in modern Ukraine. Finalist at the Kindle Book Awards 2016.

Albina Hume is often asked the same question - how did she meet her South African husband John, a property developer and the man who bred 1,000 rhinos? She has always kept her response simple. Until now. Born with a speech impediment that turned into a childhood fear of being unworthy of love has resulted in various misfortunes, from failing dreams and relationships to even ending up in a police cell for 51 days, until she finally learned to focus on her dreams, not her fears.

"Who would think that my inability to pronounce the letter R would turn my life upside down and lead me from Ukraine to South Africa?"

Native Ukrainian Albina has transformed her life story into a powerful testimony, written in English, her third language, which she taught herself ten years ago. Miss Fortune tells the story of how childhood fears can dictate one's present and future, and the many challenges she faced in her quest to find happiness.

Currently, Albina and John Hume have dedicated their lives to preventing the South African rhino population from becoming extinct by breeding and protecting rhinos for future generations. More info →
