Fascinating true story that takes you through the events that lead to a fairly uneducated girl (according to the book) but with a charismatic personality, to find herself married to a war lord and embroiled in the bloodshed after venturing to Africa to aid the victims. Interesting to observe how circumstances can lead a person to change their integrity and ideals when power comes into play.

Having lived and worked in south Sudan for over a year, this was a great way to delve into the history of the place through the eyes and the words of yet another khawaja lost in the morality of it all. It touched me, I questioned things, saw things I different lights and feel an affinity with some of the people in the book. Great insights. Couldn't put it down

Well written for anyone interested in South Sudan (or Sudan) it is well worth a read. Maybe not as critical of Emma as I may have liked but Deborah Scroggins obviously did her research and produced something worth adding to your reading list.

Challenging and often disturbing read. Recommended to me as a way of understanding more about what's happening in Southern Sudan.

Fascinating read - real insight into the flawed Western view of how aid works (or doesn't).
