In 1945, an infant left inadvertently to die in the jungles
of the Belgian Congo is discovered by a young Bashilele
tribesman on a mission to claim the head of an enemy.
Recognized as human—despite her pale white skin and strange
blue eyes—the baby is brought into the tribe and raised as
its own. Thirteen years later, the girl—now called "Ugly
Eyes"—will find herself at the center of a controversy that
will rock two separate societies.
Young missionary Amanda Brown hears the incredible stories
of a white girl living among the Bashilele headhunters. In
the company of the local police chief, Captain Pierre
Jardin, and with the witch doctor's wife, the quick-witted
Cripple, along as translator, Amanda heads into the wild
hoping to bring the lost girl back to "civilization." But
Ugly Eyes no longer belongs in their world—and the secrets
surrounding her birth and disappearance are placing them all
in far graver peril than anyone ever imagined.
