Who is The Barbarian?

A true story following the life of a woman who grew up in a small rural African missionary village and was raised by retired teachers and devoted Christians. This in itself had its challenges, but they were nothing compared to the trauma that awaited her. Throughout the book there is a large build up as the reader waits to see who he, the Barbarian, may be as the title suits so many of the people in the story. A teacher like her parents, the author attempts to explain how a once popular, cheerful and lively woman could become a very lonely, dejected and pathetic shell of her prior self, full of hurt and hatred.
She tells of over twenty three years of being unfairly treated even barbarically treated. This is an insight into her world, allowing readers to hear a voice and experience a life and a story that is a unique African perspective on the world.
