Letitia Mason fell in love with East and Central Africa while living and working in a Harambee school in Kenya in 1972. She has a passion for mercy and justice and now works for Flame International, an organisation providing a ministry of peace and reconciliation in areas of conflict and trauma. She has listened to many stories of women’s lives while on short-term missions in South Sudan. This book is a tribute to the bravery, faith, and dignity of the women of South Sudan during decades of civil war.

 

Excerpt:

He holds my shoulder so tightly it hurts and pushes me towards one of the soldiers, who grabs my wrists and starts to drag me to the doorway. I do not want to go. I hear Ma give a wailing cry deep in her throat, and she runs towards me.

‘No! No! No!’ she screams. ‘You cannot take her!’ I try to reach her but the soldier picks me up and carries me up the steps. I hear a scuffle behind us and shouting. There is a loud explosion, and Peter cries out in pain and Ma is screaming:

‘My daughter! Don’t take her! Kill me.’ There is laughter and more gun shots. The door bangs shut, and the soldier carries me inside and drops me on the floor. I hear the key turn in the lock, and he is gone.
