About the Book

A saga of young men and women cruelly kidnapped from their native land to toil mercilessly on foreign soils. The humiliation and inhumane treatment they endure is like none ever recorded on this earth. But even as they struggle with their predicament they remain true to their belief that a higher power will liberate them from their torture. That power manifests in the natives of the land who fare no better than the captives, yet are strong enough to manage some semblance of their former life before the kidnappers came. This allows them to aid the captives until they acquire the wherewithal to help themselves.

About the Author

Alif Yah’ya’ is the 12th child of John Walker and Alice Watkins Oates.His given name is Oliver Christi Oates. The name Alif although it is Arabic can also be spelled Aleph which is Hebrew and is the closest he could name himself to his mother without using the feminine Alice. The name Yah’ya is Arabic for John. Thus this son of John and Alice has taken both their names for his own. His education includes Sterling High School in Sheffield Alabama, Alverson Draughton school of Business in Florence Alabama, Joseph Drake Technical School in Huntsville Alabama, Lasalle University in Philadelphia Pennsylvania, and Temple University School of Law in Philadelphia. He has worked many jobs in may fields for a diverse set of employees: such as taxi driver, truck driver, school bus driver, trolley and subway operator, electrical lineman, school teacher, revenue accountant, tax officer, benefit analyst, and he is a veteran of the United States Air Force. However his passion has always been writing which he now chooses to pursue.
