Fiction • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

The difficulty of portraying stark violence and its aftermath for those who survive it is one of the most challenging tasks for any narrator. Angelle Gullett rises to the task in this novel set in war-torn Africa. After Jacqueline endures horrific violence, her survivor's guilt has her shifting wildly between sanity and madness. Living alone on a remote island in the Aegean, she relives the days before the nation of Monrovia fell to a band of teenage thugs whose brutality, in a way, was worse than death. Despite Jacqueline's fragile state of mind, Gullett's tone reflects her struggle to accept what happened and the sparks of hope she begins to generate toward her own future.
