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.

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)

    "A different take"

    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.

    Story
    "Well Worth Your Time"

    "Inspring" in no way does this book justice, but it is inspiring. It is also horrifically tragic--but lest that scare the timid-hearted off--rest assured that the horror and tragedy are presented in extremely non-graphic and bitter-LESS form. Much more could be said, but I'll quit at that.

    "A book EVERYONE should read!"

    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.

    "Amazing Story"

    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....

    "Left to Tell"

    This is a moving account of a young woman's faith and personal testimony how she survived the genocide against the Tutsis in Rwanda. At times IO felt as though I was in the bathroom with her hiding. The naration is excellent.

    "Inspiring"

    If only we all could handle adversity so well. Her ability to forgive is an example to be held up to all of us. Although this is a story about a very tragic event, I felt hope and love for God throughout. Well done!
