Abstract:

"Abeo Kata, a young woman must learn to love and trust again after experiencing the brutality of ritual servitude in West Africa."--Provided by publisher.

As the privileged nine-year-old daughter of a West African government employee and stay-at-home mother, Abeo Kata lives a comfortable, happy life. Then Abeo's father, following his mother's advice, places the girl in a religious shrine, hoping that the sacrifice of his daughter will serve as atonement for the crimes of his ancestors. Unspeakable acts befall Abeo for the fifteen years she is held in the shrine. When she is finally rescued, broken and battered, she must struggle to overcome her past, endure the revelation of family secrets, and learn to trust and love again. -- adapted from back cover.
