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.

"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)
Yes! I have revisited sections of the story to hear how she desperately hung on to her faith, and how God guided her thru every second because she kept her eye on Jesus...she trusted Him for every little thing.
It lets you know what we are capable of as people. Our capacity to love and unfortunately, our capacity to hate.
No, I have not listened to any of her performances before. She portrayed the story excellently.
My heart ached for the RWandan people...both tribes.
It amazes me how a people can wrong their neighbor because they do not have or know "the love of God". The love of man is not enough!
There's always hope.
My first audible book.
Her beautiful voice.
It makes you wonder why we complain about little things.
Looking forward to my next audible book.
I think that learning about the Rwandan Holocaust from a survivor was the best thing about it.
I did not have just a single memorable moment because I thought that the whole story was good.
The story is inspiring and can only do good. Also some people cannot spend much time reading but can listen to the story on a CD as they drive or on a CD or iPhone as they work
Very clear and reflects the emotions felt
Sadness, yes, but also joy at Immaculee's readiness to forgive.
It is refreshing to see that Immaculee's Catholic Faith came out very clearly. I am grateful to Steve Erwin who organised the publishing of this book that he did not omit or downplay this. Wunderbar!
Yes--in fact I am using it as a teaching point with confirmations students (religious education) in regards to a modern day example of forgiveness that is extraordinary and what we are called to as Christians.
When she prays and is overcome with a knowledge that in order not to hate or let evil into her being she must love which leads to her ability to forgive.
Focuses on Immaculee's internal struggle during an atrocious civil war. A great story even though it is very sad the horrible things people can inflict on one another.

This book so touched my life. Don't miss this one folks. You will be challenged to wake up and be conscience, then determined to stomp out discrimination and hate like never before. I fell in love with Ilibagiza by the end of the story and thank the Lord she had the courage to go back and relive her horror and loss to help and educate the world against the tragedy of hate, war, prejudice and genocide.
Immaculee's story is a amazing as her circumstances were bazaar. This is a powerful story of the unlimited possibilities for forgiveness that the human spirit can obtain when that spirit relies on the Christ of love and forgiveness. Immaculee demonstrates what every believer should understand--that God can do a work in any heart, in any place, but the heart that is surrendered through will or circumstance is the heart from which love flows. If this forgiveness had only been in the heart of the enemy....
