Summary

Immaculee Ilibagiza grew up in a country she loved, surrounded by a family she cherished. But in 1994 her world was ripped apart as Rwanda descended into bloody genocide. Immaculee's family was brutally murdered in 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 together in a local pastor's cramped bathroom while hundreds of machete-wielding killers hunted 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 hideout having discovered the meaning of truly unconditional love-a love so strong she was able to seek out and forgive her family's killers.This remarkable young woman's triumphant story of her journey through the darkness of genocide will inspire anyone whose life has been touched by fear, suffering and loss.
