    Story
    (37)

    A family living in a makeshift shanty in urban Kenya scurries to find gifts of any kind for the impending Christmas holiday. A Rwandan girl relates her family's struggles to maintain a facade of normalcy amid unspeakable acts. A young brother and sister cope with their uncle's attempt to sell them into slavery. Aboard a bus filled with refugees - a microcosm of today's Africa - a Muslim boy summons his faith to bear a treacherous ride across Nigeria.

    Story

    I chose to try this book because it was one of Oprah's book club selections. I usually don't listen to book club selections of any kind. It was obviously a well written book and well read by the narrator. It was mildly interesting. I managed to plod through most of the stories, but I just couldn't get into the book enough to finish it.
