"A fascinating story…not only one of horror but of great humanity."
—The New York Times Book Review
"Told in Kassindja’s voice, this memoir is also a precious lesson about cultures, women’s human rights policy, and perhaps most important, faith in God and humanity. These elements, fluidly interwoven, create an incredible narrative."
—The Washington Post
"Moving and powerful."
"An astonishing true story . . . A sprawling adventure . . . Full of good guys and bad guys, lush landscapes, barren prison cells, love, courage, despair, and cruelty."
—The Philadelphia Inquirer
"A straightforward, gripping narrative, not easily forgotten."
