She was eight when the civil war broke out. She thought the sound of guns was thunder and was looking forward to playing in the mud. Before the day was out her neighbours were being shot in the street.
Sarah Gabriel remembers the run to the border, refugees eaten by crocodiles, her time in a rebel training camp and then, like magic, being whisked away to a residential boarding school in Cuba. This was a trial all on its own because her father, the SPLM ambassador for South Sudan, was recalled and he and her mother then disappeared!
How she found the inner strength to overcome these obstacles, finish school, fly to Canada as a refugee and then prosper there through hard work, is one compelling theme of this book.
But beyond that is the story of how Sarah not only found herself, but saved her family. One small girl against the world.
It's quite a journey; you'll be amazed, awed, comforted and uplifted by her story and her resilience.
