I think I first heard of Sarah, rather Ssehura was when her remains were returned to africa in sometime in 01, 02.

What I really liked about this novel is that it didn't end with Ssehura's death, it continued on to tell of what happened to both those who abused and helped her. Also, what become of her in the end.
