One woman’s journey through a century of love, war and discovery. Curiosity, Adventure, & Love is a the story of a woman raised by fate to go boldly where few young women of her time and upbringing would go... into the arms of chance and life. A young American woman leaves her country and all security behind, to begin an adventure in the Philippines that would witness the birth of a nation, a cruel war and occupation and reconstruction. Jessie, is a striking personality, somewhere between Scarlett O’Hara and Amelia Earhart, who knew no boundaries and flew far ahead of her times, without regard to sex or society. Her story of a century well-lived is both rich and one that should restore our faith in our own humanity.
