The Project: Sister Warriors by Roselyn Kelada-Sedra
When young Rhania is bride-napped, and her half-sister rescues her, both women confront who they are in crisis and what they really believe about who God is. Eyaliya and Rhania are half-sisters in the fictional land of Rjopistan. Eyaliya’s ambition is to live sustainably in a monastic community, but her dream is derailed when 16-year-old Rhania is abducted. Eyaliya goes after her and finds herself confronting her doubts about God and what human life is worth to her. A quick-paced drama with comic elements, SISTER WARRIORS is about sisterhood, bride-napping and crisis of faith. Bridenapping is the practice of abducting and forcing girls and young women into marriage. It is practiced in close to 20 countries TODAY.
