About the Book

This book presents a descriptive picture of a community of people (Tartweh, Drapoh and Jeadepo) who lived in abject poverty, worship other gods and are socio-politically isolated from the rest of the country, Liberia. Lillian, an American Christian Missionary from Washington State had a vision to embark on a mission to reduce illiteracy, mortality and promote Christianity in the region. The gods of the region, led by their chief, who is called “Qui” and his chief lieutenant name Capu, are mad and vowed to destroy the work of God. Lillian is determined and armed with the power of God. Standing resolutely alongside her are the poorest of the poor children going against the spirits of darkness. Lillian Swanson has passed on to glory almost two decades ago but spiritually empowered inhabitants are on the offensive in the region, the so-called gods are on the run. The sympathizers are calling on the spirits of their ancestors for help. The battle goes on as government and the civil society stand aloof. It is a book that will keep you awake all night long.
