Customer Review

on 7 January 2009
I haven't read a book as quickly as I read this one - I was gripped reading about Halima Bashir's life, the culture in Sudan and the events that happened to her. Halima manages to recount the events - the happy moments - and the horrific moments with such detail. Her ambition and determination as a child growing up, working hard at school to become a doctor is a wonderful story. Her father's dreams for his daughter, his insight and wanting his daughter to make her own life for herself. That this woman managed to pull herself through horrific life threatening events and survive all the odds blows me away. She wants to see the innocent people in her country free from war. It is astonishing that the violence and ethnic cleansing in Sudan could not be stopped.
