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.

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.This is Immaculee's first book.

When I read this book I was compeled to continue reading by the author's incredibly intimate relationship with God. Being a protestant I didn't realize, and the Lord revealed to me, my prejudices and misconceptions against the Catholic denomination. He showed me through this book that it's not about denominations; our Christian life is all about our relationship with Him and letting Him work through us to touch other lives. This author opened her heart and touched mine deeply. I'll not be the same after reading this book. Her 2nd book, Led by Faith, is even better!
