From the inside flap of the book:
I learned early in life how to survive.
A skill that became vital in my position.
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.
