Sharing Discussing Understanding

Commonwealth Journalists' Association

CJA-UK kicks off its 2012 activities with the book launch of this fascinating family story by former BBC journalist Ian Richardson. See invitation below.

‘God’s Triangle’ – 16 April, 2012. 6:30 to 8pm


When Florence ‘Florrie’ Cox and the newly-ordained missionary, the Rev. Frank Paice, became engaged to be married, there was much joy in the two families and the church they both attended in Melbourne, Australia. So, why did the marriage fall apart while they were spreading God’s word in East Bengal during the First World War? Why did the families and the church go to such lengths to hide what happened? And what was it about the story that resulted in two Supreme Court judges ordering the divorce file to be sealed for all time?

Ian Richardson, an Australian journalist who worked for many years for the BBC, was determined to learn the truth about his Great Aunt Florrie. So began a long and fascinating detective hunt. God’s Triangle is the outcome – both as this book and as a screenplay in pre-production in Australia.
