When Patience Ibrahim's husband died, she feared that her life was over. She had prayed every night for a baby to complete her family, and suddenly she found herself a nineteen-year-old widow, alone in the world. But when she fell in love again, a happy future seemed possible. Patience married once more , and was overjoyed to discover that she was pregnant.
 
A few days later, everything fell apart. Men from Boko Haram arrived at her door, killing Patience's new husband and kidnapping her.
