"Badeeah Hassan was just 18 when she witnessed firsthand the horrors of the 2014 genocide of the Ezidi people by ISIS forces. Captured by ISIS, ... Badeeah was among hundreds forced into a brutal human trafficking network made up of women and girls of Ezidi ethnicity ... [Her] story takes her to Syria where she is sold to a high-ranking ISIS commander, ... kept as a house slave, raped, and routinely assaulted ... In captivity, she draws on memories and stories from her childhood to maintain a small bit of control in an otherwise volatile situation. Ultimately, it is her profound sense of faith and brave resistance that lead her to escape with Eivan and reunite with family"-- Provided by publisher.
