Kimberly Scott's narration is steady, purposeful, and confident—attributes that keep sadness at bay while listening to this story of the war in Liberia that disrupted author Leymah Gbowee’s life when she was a teen. Scott’s moderate pace may be tedious to those used to a more varied delivery, but those who are fascinated by the author’s story may not mind. Family drama and the histories of several generations are recounted in restrained tones that help underscore the author’s painful loss of a privileged life. As an adult, the author found herself living a nightmare of domestic abuse. The experiences she recounts inspired her to organize the Liberian Mass Action for Peace, which brought women together to fight for their rights and for an end to the war, and which garnered her a 2011 Nobel Peace Prize.
