The captivating, inspiring true journey of Liberian refugee Louise Géesedeh Barton is recreated with vivid, haunting detail in this spellbinding memoir.

For more than ten years, Louise spent her life on the run, hunted down as a member of the indigenous Krahn tribe and a distant relative of President Samuel K. Doe, who was assassinated during the civil war. This engrossing account is the only memoir written by a woman of the hunted Krahn tribe, and is a testimony of the strength of the human spirit coupled with miraculous provision in the midst of unbearable hardships.

Louise’s authentic voice exposes immense love and hope for humanity, devoted passion and drive, a strong will to survive, and an unyielding faith. Her poignant narrative draws the reader in close, revealing a complex range of emotions and experiences; she paints a deeply holistic picture of her beautiful yet tragic motherland, Africa.

Captivating, horrifying, and beautiful, Louise’s story serves as timeless inspiration.
