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.

Thank you for this wonderful book. After losing almost everyone and everything she loved to war and hatred, Imaculee has forgiven. Thank you for writing this book.

Emotional yet uplifting...

I am writing this review 6 years on from reading the book. I'd given it 5 stars on all accounts, however, never actually wrote a review. I remember crying at parts as I was listening, however, overall the book is one of hope and strength. The book has stayed with me and that is a good thing. I would advocate this type of book being read in schools, not for religious purposes, for humanity.
