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)
This was such an amazing story of her great faith and strength through a very very difficult time. She truly paints a picture of the experience that she had. The narration was excellent very easy to listen to and very captivating.
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.
I've just finished Left to Tell and there are no words that I could give that would sufficiently describe this incredible, amazing story! My heart raced to each and every word! I cried outward throughout and I learned so mucho of he power of faith, love and forgiveness! I highly recommend it!
I liked the spirit of encouragement throughout the book. I enjoyed being reminded that GOD is omnipresent and hears our hearts. I would recommend this book to all if you struggle with believing GOD hears your heart and prayers.
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!
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.
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
