About the Book

C.C. Nield’s life has been laced with childhood and spousal abuse, and demanding work challenges. In Extraction, she shares her story as she fought to overcome these and bounced back through resilience, creativity, and humor.

Beginning with the period before her birth in Montreal, Canada, in 1947, this memoir chronicles the path of Nield’s life, including escaping a terrible childhood; immigrating to Kenya, Africa; renouncing her Canadian citizenship; and traveling through Africa, the Far East, and the Middle East. Nield tells how she lived for decades in a prison of confusion, fear, and terror. Her experiences, coupled with difficult decisions, were steppingstones that molded her into a stronger braver person.

The story culminates with the courageous steps to extract her back to Canada in 2019 so she could resume her Canadian citizenship, and get urgent health care.
