A personal story of the ongoing tragedy in Sudan’s Darfur region, where local African inhabitants have been targeted by the Arab-Sudanese president and his government for ethnic cleansing. After training as a medical doctor, and being almost ritually raped by Sudanese soldiers, the author now lives in exile in London, U.K.

An excellent book about the values of family, and how those storng bonds can get you through anything. I hesitated at first to read it, why would anyone want to live the horrors of violence and rape, but as I read through the book, I quickly came to realize that is is a story of , traditions, community and unconditional love of family. Those are the things worth fighting for, and by bringing light to this, how can governements continue to ignore the plight of these people.

A stirringly sad story of life for women in these countries.

Should be required reading for everyone in the Western Christian world.
