Praise

“Olmi’s tale provides a glimpse into [Bakhita’s] interior life, revealing the woman within the saint.” —Booklist

“I was enthralled and moved by Olmi’s account of Bakhita’s life. This spare and sensuous novel is unflinching, yet not exploitative. Everyone should read this book.” —Therese Anne Fowler, New York Times bestselling author of A Well-Behaved Woman and Z

“A powerful, captivating story.” —Marek Halter, author of Sarah
 
“Intimate in tone, epic in scope, Bakhita tells the moving story of one woman’s trajectory from bondage to faith and healing.” —Mitchell James Kaplan, author of By Fire, By Water

“Poignant…Olmi enters into this character with empathy but without excessive pathos.” —Le Figaro
