A gripping true story of faith in God.
This true story takes truth to its darkest haunts. A religious father scarred by war. An innocent teenage daughter enslaved by his fears. The life-threatening places she must go. Can she escape? Can God save her? Will he? And, as the years tick on, is there someone who could love her as she is?
This teenager, Toma Rose, is a second generation American. A top science student in high school. But her life suddenly changes when her father forces her to drop out of high school. Had she known that for the next thirteen years he would subject her to forced labour, danger, and homelessness, she could have left. But she doesn’t and now she can’t escape. All she can do is cry out to God.
Gritty. Complex. Beautiful and uplifting.

“A painful, inspiring, beautiful story. I found it powerful and gripping, thoughtful and challenging.” AC
“An account of growing up in a context few of us could imagine. Despite many opportunities to be bitter and faithless this book is a record of hope and trust in God.” KB
“Eva shares a story of extraordinary hardship with an extraordinary generosity; her words tell of the hope that does not put us to shame. A compelling read.” RB
“Because of my own experience, I felt the pain and confusion on each page. Then I realized that it continues on all over everywhere for so many. Your transparency and courage in the telling, of God’s deliverance and redemption in the end, are so important for those currently in a situation or who have come out of one. There is an exit, healing and “normalization” of life and purpose. Stories like yours help encourage and direct the way.” JS
