About The Book


In this captivating tale, Memuna tells of her everyday life as a child, even when displaced to a neighbouring country to live with relatives not seen for years, her culture and the pleasure, trust, joy and challenges of growing within a large African family. But the slow development of this new normality is also ripped apart by the tumultuous upheaval of the same terrorist war that sent her from her homeland.

‘Emotionally this book is amazing, fascinating, heart rendering and up lifting.’

‘What an amazingly strong little girl she was. Memuna certainly had some power over her own life despite the situation she was in and she never lost the knowledge between good and right and that of wrong. I doubt she and her sisters would have survived without her courage.’
