You’ve probably never heard of it because it ranks dead last on the World Press Freedom Index. Abeba was born in this war-torn country. She was forced to marry an abusive older man. She has run from bullets and seen bombs fall from the sky, lost loved ones, been thrown into prison, and then escaped the country with her two youngest sons. Abeba is now in Germany where she is battling cancer. “Despite all my hardships, I am blessed and remain hopeful for the future,” Abeba says. “Sometimes my story is hard to stomach, but I believe it may inspire others who are struggling through domestic violence, are stuck in a seemingly powerless situation, or battling life-threatening illness.” Why this book with its accompanying risk? Abeba's amazing story demands to be told. It gives voice to domestic violence survivors, human rights violations, and gender inequality. But it doesn't beg for sympathy. It offers hope and inspiration in the face of injustice and cruelty.

It is based on Abeba’s life, but names, places, and some events have been changed in order to protect the family and add to the reader’s experience.
