Summary
"Driven by her family's devastating losses, Congolese expatriate Francisca Thelin embarks, with human rights activist Lisa J. Shannon, on a perilous journey back to her beloved homeland, now under the shadow ofone of Africa's most feared militias--Joseph Kony's Lord's Resistance Army. With gunmen camped at the edge of town, Francisca is forced to face a paralyzing clash between her life in America and her family's rapidly evaporating world--and the reality that their rush to her family's aid may backfire"--Dust jacket flap
