    Description

    The first definitive account of Boko Haram’s abduction of the Chibok schoolgirls, their years in captivity, and why this story still matters - by celebrated international journalist Isha Sesay. 

    The kidnapping of 276 schoolgirls by Boko Haram in 2014 made global headlines. From poor Nigerian families, these girls had defied the odds and pursued an education, but daring to dream resulted in one of the most high-profile abductions in modern history. Award-winning CNN anchor Isha Sesay was on the front lines as the story broke, and when 21 of the girls were released, she was the only journalist to accompany them on their dangerous journey back home.

    In Beneath the Tamarind Tree, having developed unprecedented access to the Chibok girls, Sesay shares an intimate account of the night Boko Haram attacked, exclusive details about their years in captivity, and their daring tales of escape. We meet Priscilla, who dreamed of becoming a doctor, Saa, who juggled schoolwork with family obligations, Mary, who fought constant homesickness to stay in school, and Dorcas, who planned to be the first in her family to get a college degree. 

    Sesay delves into the inadequate Nigerian government response to the kidnapping, while synthesizing lessons about global national security. She also reminds us of the personal sacrifice required of journalists to bring us the truth, at a time of growing mistrust of the media. Beneath the Tamarind Tree is a gripping listen and a story of resilience with a soaring message of hope at its core, reminding us of the ever-present truth that progress for all of us hinges on unleashing the potential of women.

    First Hand Information.

    I have not seen any writing this in-depth, concise and succinct on the missing girls answering the questions what happened? When it happened? Why we don’t have any details? And What stage we are on this... I really thank the author of this book for her effort. This things happen and sadly this is a true life story... I hope she won’t relent on her effort to lend her voice to the release of the remaining 112. Thanks once more...

    #ContinueTheRecovery, #BBOG

    This is powerful story that I hope is read by millions. I would love to see it as required reading in schools. The history, the lessons of courage, faith and perseverance. I’m also greatful that Isha Sesay was the narrator what a by voice and storyteller. Also, you did
    a wonderful job of allowing the young lady’s to retain agency and be vulnerable at the same time.

    A story unfinished

    In a time where mainstream media cared about two reality tv characters. This story should have taken center stage. Having this brought to light shows we need to care beyond mainstream media. These girls matter and o appreciate knowing there story and commend the journalist who didn’t let it die.

    Powerful story!

    Even though this described a very horrific event, I was written sensitivity and faith. I know very little about Nigeria so I appreciated the chapters on the history and government of Nigeria. These girls suffered so much and the government was largely unresponsive. Listening to this book gave me much food for thought. Could I be as courageous and true to my faith under extreme circumstances as some of them were? They are my heroes.

    The author read the book. I loved listening to her talk. It was a great narration.

    Resilient

    This book and story match the global narrative of the education of girls. Profoundly honest, articulate and reflective. The author was dedicated to this story but also deeply connected to these girls & her wish to protect them, honor them & portray them in their light- not hers.

    Simultaneously Heartbreaking & Warming

    Thank you, Isha, for your persistent determination to bring us the bittersweet testimony of our sisters.
    It’s remarkably astounding!

    Journalism mixed with personal narrative

    The Chibok kidnappings were given less coverage than they deserved in the U.S., and this book helps fill in some of the gaps from the past. Equally important, the book continues to raise awareness of Islamic extremism and the real and continued threat of terrorism, regardless of whether or not people have tired of hearing about it (particularly in the west where neither are daily threats to our livelihood or comfort).

    Ms. Sesay tells the story of these young women well, however a significant portion of the book is used to tell her own story and give her own views and opinions. Though she certainly has a right to do so, journalism’s aim is always to be a neutral observer, presenting the facts and first hand accounts of those involved. The book’s frequent use of the first person and personal narrative detract from the stories of the young women who endured such immense trials and hardship.

    Towards the later half of the book, I found myself skipping through large chunks to get back to the story of the girls. It is not that Ms. Sesay’s personal stories are not worthy of being told or not interesting; it’s because I purchased this book to hear the girls’ stories, not those of the journalists relaying them. I would’ve preferred she further explore why some girls like Priscilla and Leah had the strength and willingness to bravely risk martyrdom while others, at different times, could no longer endure the threats of their oppressors and acquiesced.
