Emma's War: A True Story
Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks
Date: January 2007
Duration: 14 hours 22 minutes
The adventurous young British relief worker Emma McCune came to Sudan determined to make a difference. She became a near legend in the bullet-scarred, famine-ridden country, but her eventual marriage to a rebel warlord made international headlines and spelled disastrous consequences for her ideals.
"Scroggins brings Sudan's agony to vivid life; at the same time, she gives us a lyrical, suspenseful, psychologically acute study in idealism and self-delusion."-New York Times Book Review
