I really enjoyed this book.  Absina is an outcast in a hostile society.  Saved from being put outside her villages walls as an infant to die only by her mother’s standing as the healer, she has lived a life of abuse and degradation.  Her mother loves and shields her the best she can but when a charismatic leader comes and call for the death of all outcasts, she escapes to find her father.  Great storytelling with very real characters and nuanced worldbuilding.
