Rebuke the Wind takes you behind the headlines and into the African bush, into the Sahel where the world’s most lethal Islamist group Boko Haram has terrorized a large swath of Africa for almost 20 years.
Epic in its scope, the novel begins in France, moves through the United States, Iraq, Morocco, Nigeria and Cameroon to sweep into the Arab gulf and the source of terror financing. At the center of the story is Isa, a remarkable 14-year-old who, having been kidnapped by Boko Haram, defies the terrorists with her own escape and her rescue of a Frenchman also held hostage.
The novel gives a vivid portrait of her courage, faith and determination as she confronts seemingly impossible odds. Providing texture to the story are brave US, UK and Indian private security teams, seemingly soulless child soldiers of Boko Haram, corrupt Nigerian military, Saudi terrorist financiers, Kenyan money-launderers and the international politics of terror.
Rebuke the Wind is a tribute to the people of the Sahel, particularly the young women, victimized by Boko Haram and largely unknown to Western readers. Its style is simple and fast, accessible to adult and young adult readers.
