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)
Immaculee's story is deeply touching. The courage of her faith during a period of intense persecution is humbling, and her ability to grow in understanding God's love and his timing is inspiring. Her ability to use that understanding and apply the most selfless act of forgiveness is truly admirable. Her hope for the future of humanity and Rwanda is empowering. What a remarkable woman.
This book tells the story of a young woman caught up in a horrific situation. It is amazing the living conditions that she and other women had to suffer while hiding from their would be murderers. This book was historically informative and emotionally stirring and inspirational.
This book is very inspirational. I am a Catholic and have been through many obstacles. Although not as brutal as Immaculee has been through. Like Immaculee I also know that without God in my life I would not be here today. God has a plan for me. Hue has also put me on a path here on this earth. God is also my Saviour. This book has opened my eyes further to God's love. Thank you Immaculee for sharing your story to myself and others.
I heard Wayne Dyer refer to her ss a living saint and i agree completely agree. Not only is her story amazing, she writes so well its hard to believe that she thought herself English under such extreme conditions.

This was a recommended book, and I really thought I would not like this because it was a true story about the Holocaust. I want to read get the hardcopy and read/listen to this again. Immaculee was very inspirational!!
Mom of all BOYS
Truly inspirational. I found it overwhelmingly honest. I think all high school girls should read this powerful book. Power of prayer.
I love suspense, murder mysteries, psycho thriller books most of all! I listen when not taking classes for my masters degree.
This story was heart breaking but also filled me with hope and joy and to wonder if I would ha e that kind of faith of placed in that kind of situation.
