How do children survive in time of crises? Are survival and spiritual tools being taught or is the outcome left to chance? In one of the most horrendous places on earth, a leper colony in the Roman Empire, a 12 year old girl is abandoned to war, death and disease, where she is left to survive on her own. But due to her grandfather's teachings before his death and a medicine woman's love, the child disciplined in both spiritual and survival skills, endures and overcomes inhuman and atrocious trials that no child should face. Trying to survive at all odds, she is called upon to help those less fortunate. A refreshing historical narration for young and old alike that is not only informative, inspirational and suspenseful, but is morally uplifting in its outcome. This book will make you think about your children's preparedness in times of disaster.
