Publisher's Summary

In 1994, Immaculee Ilibagiza's world was ripped apart when her native country of Rwanda descended into a bloody genocide. Her family was brutally murdered during a killing spree that lasted three months and claimed the lives of nearly a million Rwandans.

Miraculously, Immaculee survived the slaughter. For 91 days, she and seven other women huddled silently together in the cramped bathroom of a local pastor while hundreds of machete-wielding killers hunted for them. It was during those endless hours of unspeakable terror that Immaculee forged a profound and lasting relationship with God.

The triumphant story of this remarkable woman's journey through the darkness of genocide will inspire anyone whose life has been touched by fear, suffering, and loss.

©2006 Immaculee Ilibagiza and Steve Erwin; (P)2006 Hay House

What the Critics Say

"Ilibagiza's remarkable path to forgiving the perpetrators and releasing her anger is a beacon to others who have suffered injustice....This book is a precious addition to the literature that tries to make sense of humankind's seemingly bottomless depravity." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Sad and inspiring"

    I enjoyed this book very much yet it made me very sad to realize this happened in 1994. Her faith in God and the relationship she build with him through this trial is inspiring. I believe only through this relationship was she able to forgive.

    "Courage and Faith"

    I will share this book with everyone. It was highly inspiring, and fairly well written for someone whose first language is not English. The audio was excellent! I wouldn't have enjoyed it near as much without the audio with accents. Can't say enough about this book!

    "Forgiveness, One at a time!"

    Hope, healing beyond understanding. God is faithful and Immaculee's life is a witness to His great mercy and answered prayer. Thank you for making sure we don't forget about the Holocaust in Rwanda.

    Story
    "Must read"

    This is an incredible journey of faith, hope trust in God.

    It teaches us that God is with us every moment of our lives.

    How do we worry about such little things.

    How did the rest of the world not help them and why we didn't do our part to pray for them.

    It should give us clear direction on our role in the world. We should pray daily for Peace with all nations and all races.

    Prayer has infinite value.

    Story of hope so eloquently written. Very powerful.

    I hope to meet Immacule some day.

    God bless her and all she does. Thank you
