About the Author

ABUK JERVAS MAKUAC was forced to flee her homeland of South Sudan when civil war ignited in 1983. Women Caught in the Crossfire traces her perilous flight with her husband and children, surviving in an overcrowded refugee camp in Ethiopia, living in hiding in Kenya, and eventually resettling in the United States.
SUSAN LYNN CLARK is a licensed psychotherapist working in a clinic for underserved populations in Fort Worth, Texas. Dr. Clark has worked with immigrants and refugees in the US since 1984, teaching language and survival skills and helping with access to higher education.

Reviews

Tragic, and at the same time inspirational, Abuk's account of life behind the battlefront powerfully reveals the struggles that seldom make the news. As the fighting rages, women unite to keep each other, their families, and strangers alive. This harrowing account is told with courageous honesty that is vital to the understanding of the impact of war on innocents. Judy A Bernstein, author of Disturbed in Their Nests: A Journey from Sudan's Dinkaland to San Diego's City Heights.


Abuk survived an arranged marriage, a war, and isolation in a remote refugee camp where every day was a battle just to live. Her beautifully written account reveals life behind the frontline struggles of women and children to survive, and the power of women uniting. A timeless and riveting read. Judy A Bernstein, author of Disturbed in Their Nests: A Journey from Sudan's Dinkaland to San Diego's City Heights.
