About the Book

At the age of thirty-six, author Mary Reese, a single schoolteacher from California, embarked on the adventure of a lifetime. Putting aside her years of trying to adopt in the United States, she flew to Taiwan with the expectation of adopting a daughter.

In A Snowball in Hell, she shares the experience of her summer in Taiwan, and the struggle for her daughter that followed. Reese tells how she fell in love with a baby and how that transformed her and her belief system. This is the story of a mother’s love that created miracle after miracle, opening doors that brought in celebrity and political allies from around the globe.

A Snowball in Hell follows her journey to motherhood, telling the true story of an adoption that broke open an international scandal on three continents. Adoption is a difficult journey, and Reese’s personal journey changed laws and people on three continents.
