Publisher's Summary

For three months in the spring of 1994, the African nation of Rwanda descended into one of the most vicious and bloody genocides the world has ever seen. Immaculée Ilibagiza, a young university student, miraculously survived the savage killing spree that left most of her family, friends, and a million of her fellow citizens dead. Immaculée's remarkable story of survival was documented in her first book, Left to Tell: Discovering God Amidst the Rwandan Holocaust.

In Led By Faith, Immaculée takes us with her as her remarkable journey continues. Through her simple and eloquent voice, we experience her hardships and heartache as she struggles to survive and to find meaning and purpose in the aftermath of the holocaust. It is the story of a naïve and vulnerable young woman, orphaned and alone, navigating through a bleak and dangerously hostile world with only an abiding faith in God to guide and protect her.

Immaculée fends off sinister new predators, seeks out and comforts scores of children orphaned by the genocide, and searches for love and companionship in a land where hatred still flourishes. Then, fearing again for her safety as Rwanda's war-crime trials begin, Immaculée flees to America to begin a new chapter of her life as a refugee and immigrant - a stranger in a strange land.

With the same courage and faith in God that led her through the darkness of genocide, Immaculée discovers a new life that was beyond her wildest dreams as a small girl in a tiny village in one of Africa's poorest countries.

It is in the United States, her adopted country, where Immaculée can finally look back at all that has happened to her and truly understand why God spared her life . . . so that she would be left to tell her story to the world.

Interesting perspective

I wasn't sure if I liked this at first. The writing is very direct and simple which isn't bad but sometimes felt a little flat. However, I did enjoy being inside her head. She can be a bit repetitive but hearing her talk about her faith gave me a different perspective into her Catholic prayer life and her relationship with God. Basically this book is following her prayers throughout her journey. It's rare to get to hear a person's perspective on their relationship with God that just presents itself as it is instead of preaching it to you.

After reading left to tell…

I never thought that any book could compare to my favorite book left to tell by immaculate, however this book is such a testimony to our father’s faithfulness and love.

One of the most inspiring books I've ever read!!!

What did you love best about Led by Faith?

Immaculee's story is both heart-wrenching & inspiring. I'm so glad she read it herself. It helps you to feel like you were on the journey with her. She has inspired me to nurture my relationship with God & to live a life of gratitude & meaning.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes! I didn't want to stop listening! And when I had to, I couldn't wait to get back to it. I actually listened to it twice in less than a month...and now I'm listening to it for a third time.
