American Asylee

A young Pacific Island woman’s true coming of age story takes the reader from a vanishing small island state to rural Philippine villages and ends in an American jail. She and other detainees share a life inside walls few have ever entered. Narratives of survival rooted faiths stronger than the concrete that incarcerates them will shock, awe, and inspire the reader as they wait for their cases to be heard. Icons for all domestic violence survivors, faith followers, and humanitarians working towards a more globally just society; these women are the faces of today’s American asylees.
