A Thousand Sisters: My Journey into the Worst Place on Earth to Be a Woman
Just before her 30th birthday, Lisa Shannon was living a “normal” American life. Victorian bungalow, successful business, perfect fiancé. But with her father’s death and the ensuing depression, she couldn’t erase the images in her mind from an Oprah show on the atrocities of life for women in the Congo. Lisa has since dedicated her life to raising money to support women in this war-ravaged nation, where rape and brutality are a daily threat. A Thousand Sisters takes you on her journey deep into the Congo and provides insight into love, survival, friendship, and war.
