From the inside flap of the book:

WOMAN
I learned early in life how to survive.
A skill that became vital in my position.

WIFE
I was given no power, yet I was expected to hold my own
with the most powerful man in the country.

MOTHER OF THE NATION
My people were my children.
I stood between him and them.

I am not the person they say I am.
I am not my husband.
I am innocent.

Do you believe me?

The wife of a toppled dictator stands trial for her husband’s crimes.
The world will finally know the truth.
But whose?
