Is a father’s love stronger than the chains of slavery?

Before Al Qaeda.

Before Isis.

…the horror of Sudan, 2000.

Two million Christian tribal people are dead, massacred by their own militant Muslim government for refusing to renounce their faith. But that’s not why human rights photojournalist Ron Wolfson is risking his life in Sudan. He’s chasing a different story—investigating whispered reports of government sanctioned human trafficking, rumors of women and children in chains, kidnapped and auctioned off to the highest bidder, speculation that thousands of them disappear every day into the shadow world of modern-day slavery, owned by Arab masters and never seen again.

As Ron tracks the phantom story he knows is out there somewhere, Arab Murahaleen guerrillas attack a small Dinka village, slaughter the inhabitants and kidnap a lone little girl to sell on the slave market. The child’s Christian father goes after her, walks 500 miles into the North searching for her, and then forms an unlikely alliance with the American journalist.

They both follow slave trails soaked in blood and tears and together they suffer the savage retaliation of a ruthless slave trader. When Ron faces an unthinkable execution—beheading broadcast live around the world, he and the Dinka tribal must place their lives and the fate of their mission in the hands of a bloodthirsty mercenary and an orphan boy.

But time is running out. It may already be too late for them.

And too late to save the little girl before she vanishes forever into the belly of the beast

*Based on a true story in Christianity Today Magazine about a father's desperate quest to save his little girl.*

I have soooo many stories I want to tell you, so many worlds I want you to see, so many people I want you to meet. People in trouble, most of them. Big trouble they didn't ask for but there it is. Ordinary folks like you and me who are forced by circumstances to fight for their lives. And then, smack in the middle of their everyday worlds they encounter the unexplainable. It's always the game-changer.

Welcome to my world. If you'd like to know more about me, I'm easy. Click on Meet Ninie and you'll see.
