Book Overview

Immaculee Ilibagiza grew up in a country she loved, surrounded by a family she cherished. But in 1994 her idyllic world was ripped apart as Rwanda descended into a bloody genocide. Immaculee's family was brutally murdered during a killing spree that lasted three months and claimed the lives of nearly a million Rwandans. Incredibly, Immaculee survived the slaughter. For 91 days, she and seven other women huddled silently together in the cramped bathroom...

Simply wonderful

This book is moving and raw and a must read! Thought provoking and inspirational, this makes clear the triumph of love and faith over the evil of the world.

left to tell, (spanish) sobrevivir para contarlo.

It is an excellent book, I like because it teach a real lesson in faith and perseverance. Good book to read.

Very good faith story

The best book I have read in years. Nice story, good message of hope, forgiveness and faith.

Harrowing but hopeful

This beautiful, but heartbreaking true story by Immaculee Ilibagiza brings a nation's horror right down to a personal level. So much of our world seems in an endless cycle of murder and revenge; Ilibagiza experienced unimaginable terror and personal loss, but emerged with a strong faith and a willingness to forgive. In sharing her story, she gives hope, not only to her torn nation, but to the whole world. This is one of the finest stories of this genre since THE HIDING PLACE by Corrie Ten Boom or THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK. This book is both timely in its relevance and timeless in its truth. It's well-written, but not an "easy" read. It's a book to ponder, to absorb, to weep with, and ultimately to learn from. Take this journey from despair to hope.

A Book The Entire Planet Should Read!!!!

I was up until 2:30 in the morning because I could not put this book down... well except for the times that I was sobbing for several minutes at a time. But even though this book is an unflinching account of the some most heinous brutality in world history, it is amazingly uplifting. Some one else's review discribed Immaculee as a Grace of God. And that she is. I'm not religious but I am spiritual, and even though Immaculee is a devout Catholic, her spiritual revelation transcends any religion. Her message of a love and forgiveness so vast it is nearly incomprehensible, points the way to the only way to recover from the mass insanity of the world today. Immaculee, thank you for sharing your story, thank you for how your book will make a difference in so many lives that will touch the world. I want to share this book with everyone I know. This is one of the most important books I've ever read. In my life. God Bless you Immaculee.
