Über den Autor: Ruth Marimo is a thirty-one-year-old, single, lesbian, African mother of two. She was inspired to write this memoir while awaiting deportation in jail almost exactly two years ago. She had been in a very abusive marriage for six years, and when she finally found the strength to tell her abusive husband that she wanted out of the marriage, he attempted to have her deported. She was born and raised in the southern African country of Zimbabwe. She moved to the United States when she was nineteen years old in 1999. Her memoir confronts every truth about who she is. She tells her life story as it is, without any sugar-coating, from losing her mother to suicide at the age of five, being raised in different homes by relatives, never feeling like she belonged anyplace, knowing she was different from a very young age, finally accepting that she was a lesbian after being married to a man for six years, sexual abuse, domestic violence, a lonely childhood, facing all her worst fears, almost giving up on life, and finally finding hope through the freedom of accepting who she is.
