LEFT TO TELL
Wow - I loved this book. So much that happened in Rwanda in 1994 that I never knew about. The author Immaculee writes from her heart with a spiritual eye that sends a message of the love that she has of God. Through this horrific experience she teaches you the strength of the human spirit - her human spirit and how we can learn through the things that we must go through and endure.
I highly recommend this book to read.

A great book
This is truly a great book. I read it in a day; I could not put it down. Written from the experience of a genocide survivor, it is tragedy with courage and hope. It is a deeply spiritual book and gives insight into how God is present during an unthinkable brutality. Although I read this book quickly, its message will stay with me for life.
