Product Details


“Beautifully eloquent…gripping and illuminating. It’s an intimate, personal account…Even more compelling that the ups and downs of Aman’s life is what she manages to unveil about her society, religion and culture.”–Detroit Free Press

“Most impressive…A remarkable narrative, richly detailed. [Aman] tells her tale in a voice that belongs not to the present, but to her rebellious, resilient, courageous, ferociously determined self.”–Washington Post Book World

“A rare feat: a glimpse of traditional and modern Africa from a female point of view.”–Macleans
