    Tall, striking, and adventurous to a fault, young British relief worker Emma McCone came to Sudan determined to make a difference in a country decimated by the longest-running civil war in Africa. She became a near legend in the bullet-scarred, famine-ridden country, but her eventual marriage to a rebel warlord made international headlines and spelled disastrous consequences for her ideals. Enriched by Deborah scragginess's first-hand experience as an award-winning journalist in Sudan, this unforgettable account of Emma McCone's tragically short life also provides an up-close look at the volatile politics in the region. It's a world where international aid fuels armies as well as the starving population, and where the northern-based Islamic government with ties to Osama bin laden is locked in a war with the Christian and pagan south over religion, oil and slaves. Tying together these vastly disparate forces as well as Emma's own role in the problems of the region, Emma's war is at once a disturbing love story and a fascinating exploration of the moral quandaries behind humanitarian aid.
