BENEATH THE TAMARIND TREE A Story of Courage, Family, and the Lost Schoolgirls of Boko Haram

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Isha Sesay

Biography & Memoir • 12.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Author Isha Sesay narrates her experience of reporting on the return of the Chibok schoolgirls who were kidnapped by Boko Haram, the extremist group in Nigeria. Genuine passion infuses her delivery--she turns this audiobook into a feminist speech of sorts. She shares her personal experiences with relatives who grew up in Nigeria who encountered circumstances similar to those of the abductees. Sesay's tone is searingly personal as she contrasts her own upbringing as the child of immigrants in England with those of the girls she becomes obsessed with finding over a period of two years. This is a riveting volume that celebrates survival. M.R. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2019]
