|War Child is an unflinching look at the horrors of human abuse and war-and it reflects how those horrors continue to twist and shape the lives of refugees long after they escape their own country''s conflicts. This story tells the true events of one young man''s courageous flight from injustice in West Africa, where he falls victim to violence at the hands of an abusive, gambling father, only to be captured by marauding rebel troops, then held prisoner, by a supposedly enlightened Western society. On his long road of despair he is subjected to a chain of continued abuse, victimization and disappointment. Weakened by his struggle for freedom, Ray begins to lose his sense of self and reality. This mental confusion eventually brings him to the brink of madness. Ray''s ultimate freedom is hard won, and is accomplished only through his indomitable spirit and a strong faith that prevailed against all odds.|
