Lost Children of Cush

a novel of South Sudan



Beautifully written and very moving.

A really absorbing story, with engaging characters and cleverly intertwined plotlines. Very well written and easy to read, despite tackling a thought-provoking and tragic subject.

This is a good story with many threads and surprising points of view that has shown me things I hadn’t imagined. Some of the narrative is shocking and compelling.

I really enjoyed this book. Maria’s story is shocking and distressing but her character and the main character Jane are well rounded and invoke the sympathy of the reader. I wanted to know how their lives would turnout. The background story of slave trafficking and the Trust is interesting and some of the descriptive narrative is beautiful.
