Description

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.

    Left to Tell is an incredible novel and well worth the read. It follows the story of Immaculée Ilabagiza, a fugitive in her own nation, as she enters into hiding during a time of war in Rwanda. From the very beginning, the story grips readers with a picture of the way Rwanda was just before the struggle, then enters into the main story of hiding and surviving. In the end, the story moves to feature the process of forgiving the people who killed her family and friends. I was deeply moved by this book, and it kept my attention throughout the whole thing. This book is incredibly inspiring, interesting, and fun to read. I read this book with a group of fellow students and every one of us enjoyed reading it very much. I really recommend this book to anyone, but especially to those looking to read about forgiveness and faith.

    I was kind of dreading this book. I had to read it for school so I expected it to be a complete waste of my time. But this book was absolutely perfect in every way. It showed me the power of God that I sometimes fail to see. And also that God does indeed move in mysterious ways. Although I'm not Catholic, it's enlightened me in my faith in ways that I could have never imagined. It was so worth the $10 I spent on it. I recommend this book to everyone, no matter what types of books you're interested in or what religion you are. It'll open your yes to God & the world in so many ways.

    I am only 14 years old, and this book inspired me so much. Most 14 year olds don't read much, and I'm not one of those who read often. When I read this, it brought me joy and tears and suspense. It kept me on edge and I didn't want to close it. I recommend this to EVERYONE. At some points it gets hard to read but keep going. You won't regret it.
