Roy Castle's cancer was public property. He was photographed, interviewed, televised and listened to by millions. When he died it made the headlines. As life went down and up and down again, Fiona had to find stability from outside her own resources. Fiona found the strength she needed, both before and after Roy's death, in her Christian faith. She tells her story in the hope that it will help many others who are bereaved by sickness or death. Living Under the Volcano Christine Hailes Perillo with Vivien Culver What made a young woman think she could take the gospel to hardened men in some of the most depressing and dehumanising conditions of the world? The sudden darkness, sulphurous ash and thick mud that rained down from Mount Pinatubo was a graphic symbol of the depravity and corruption that Chrissy Perillo faced when she travelled alone to the Philippines. Slight of frame and inexperienced in the ways of the world, she walked into prisons where even the guards feared for their lives, and she faced authorities who would not balk at murder to mete out justice . Fiona Castle is a popular speaker, and Jan Greenough is a writer. They have collaborated on several books, including the bestselling Give Us This Day and Living Simply. Christine Hailes Perillo runs the Philippine Outreach Centre, working with prisoners, prostitutes and disadvantaged children. She is married to Dondrie Perillo and they have four children, one adopted child and one foster child.
