Thomasina McIntyre, a Scots-Presbyterian missionary in San Francisco's Chinatown in 1895 will stop at nothing to make life bearable for her desparate charges - stolen women and diplaced children forced to work in the brothels of Chinatown in Old San Francisco. She becomes embroiled in a bitter fight for survival against crooked politicians and an uninterested legal system. Challenging the law, invading brothels, literally stealing young women from their masters, pleading for money from the financially secure, and scouring the streets for the homeless becomes Thomasina's life work. A woman of rare courage, Thomasina McIntyre persists despite betrayal, prejudice, political scandal, and the earthquake of 1906. She becomes LoMo - one hundred girls' mother. This is her story, a true story of courage, strength, faith and devotion.
