Silenced Appealby Victoria Sethunya, John Welford (Editor), Gary Price (Commentaries by)
Here is a woman who flees harm, among other things, she is fleeing assault with a rifle in her native Lesotho. She chooses to come to the US as a student She finds a sponsor to pay for her tuition and living expenses in the US. The sponsor extends financial support to her and her family, but withdraws when an alleged Weber State "glitch" puts her into "illegal status" derailing financial plans she and her sponsor initially had.
She battles the "glitch" to clear her name but the entire time, she battles intensely with the fear to be returned back to the place where she was offered no protection even when threatened at gunpoint.
This book is a record of her journey to maintain her sanity in a highly politically charged debate in Utah.
Indeed the order of events in Silenced Appeal speaks to her mental state and condition, which is the PTSD she was diagnosed with on January 20, 2011 by Dr. DeCaria, PhD, Pyschology, in Utah while her book was published on January 20, 2009 before she learned of her diagnosis.
