Summary
"When Patience Ibrahim was nineteen, her first husband was murdered by Boko Haram. She fled to the safety of her village and remarried several months later. Having prayed for a child for years, Patience is overjoyed to discover she is pregnant. Soon after, Boko Haram soldiers are at her door. Violently abducted and forced to convert to Islam, she lives in constant terror of what her kidnappers will do. She is alone in the world and fears her life is over. For two months, Patience hides her pregnancy while facing the brutalities of her captors. By the sheer force of her determination to protect her baby, she and her child are able to survive. Now she has entrusted journalist Andrea C. Hoffmann with her story, a powerful first-person account of Boko Haram's atrocities in Nigeria and Cameroon"--Provided by publisher
