When Patience Ibrahim's husband died, she feared that her life was over. She had prayed every night for a baby to complete her family, and suddenly she found herself a nineteen-year-old widow, alone in the world. But when she fell in love again, a happy future seemed possible. Patience married once more , and was overjoyed to discover that she was pregnant.


A few days later, everything fell apart. Men from Boko Haram arrived at her door, killing Patience's new husband and kidnapping her.

This is the incredible true story of her and her baby daughter's survival, against all the odds.
