Bas is the only Black child in an all-white village in the UK,

Toyin must ultimately learn to forgive, in order to continue her inspirational
journey to recovery.
A profoundly moving memoir, yet dotted with hilarious moments, Hush
to Roar is the inspiring story of one woman's quest to find her voice and
overcome her past to live abundantly in the present.
