This is the story of one Ugandan woman whose courage and tenacity has given hope to hundreds of female survivors of war and violence.
Alice Achan was just thirteen when the LRA first terrorised her village in northern Uganda in 1987. She spent five years on the run from the brutal LRA and then cared for her young nieces after their mother died of AIDS and then losing them one by one to disease. Their deaths plunged her into depression which only began to lift after she took in an unexpected guest: a pregnant teenage girl, kidnapped and assaulted by the LRA. who had escaped captivity with her toddler.
A compelling story of hope, forgiveness, redemption and the human capacity to survive and even thrive against the backdrop of war and chaos. Royalties from the purchase of the book will go towards Te-Kworo Foundation to continue their life changing work.
