Her life ripped apart by the bloody genocide that broke out in Rwanda in 1994, Ilibagiza forged a profound and lasting relationship with God through prayer and discovered a love so strong she was able to seek out and forgive her family's killers.
From the Publisher:
Immaculee Ilibagiza grew up in a country she loved, surrounded by a family she cherished. But in 1994 her idyllic world was ripped apart as Rwanda descended into a bloody genocide. Immaculee’s family was brutally murdered during a killing spree that lasted three months and claimed the lives of nearly a million Rwandans.||Incredibly, 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 discovered the power of prayer, eventually shedding her fear of death and forging a profound and lasting relationship with God. She emerged from her bathroom hideout having discovered the meaning of truly unconditional love—a love so strong she was able seek out and forgive her family’s killers. |The triumphant story of this remarkable young woman’s journey through the darkness of genocide will inspire anyone whose life has been touched by fear, suffering, and loss.
Annotation:
In this first-person account of faith in the darkest of times, Immaculee Ilibagiza tells how she barely escaped the 1994 Rwanda genocide by hiding in the bathroom of a pastor's home for three months along with seven other women. Prayer and her faith in God got her through it all, she says, and she tells how her faith in God also allowed her to travel the difficult path from trauma to forgiveness.

Praise

"[Ilibagiza's] account of the miracles that protected her is simple and vivid. Her Catholic faith shines through, but the book will speak on a deep level to any person of faith." 01/16/2006
