Life is about love, heartbreak, adversity and overcoming them all with sheer determination. 
Maya is an 18 year old girl trying to live a normal life in a war torn country. 

She catches the eye of an Army man (Knox) who's on his last tour of duty. When sexual sparks start to fly between them, some unsavoury characters notice and they put Maya's life in danger. Knox is forced to choose in an instant to stand for duty or a girl he's beginning to like, thereby starting his own war. Knox is relieved of his duties and leaves a heartbroken Maya with a present that constantly reminds her of her real first love. She doesn't know where Knox is, except he is an American soldier. 

Life takes an awful turn that sees Maya and her family in a Refugee Camp in Kenya. Conditions in a refugee camp are terrible and not at all what she expected. The camp doesn't seem to offer any protection except to harbour some criminals.

In the meantime, Knox returns to America and he leaves the army. He returns to help run his family's multi-billion dollar businesses. He has no clue what happened to Maya or where she is. Maya has no clue where Knox is or that he has the means to get her out of her current situation. 

She works hard, she's determined and she survives all that life is throwing her way. She grows as an independent, confident woman and mother. Her luck turns around when her family is accepted as refugees in America. 
Will she look for Knox? How will they meet? What will happen to their child?
Read and enjoy the journey Maya is carving for herself and her family to freedom and happiness. 

Maya's journey to happiness starts here.

That was really good! I loved some of the descriptions and the realness of the situation, though I'm surprised she didn't bring something to defend herself with, especially in such a terrifying situation.
                              Knox sounds great though, I'm looking forward to seeing more of him ;)
