In 1994, Immaculee Ilibagiza's world was ripped apart when her native country of Rwanda descended into a bloody genocide. Her family was brutally murdered during a killing spree that lasted three months and claimed the lives of nearly a million Rwandans.

Miraculously, 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 forged a profound and lasting relationship with God.

The triumphant story of this remarkable woman's journey through the darkness of genocide will inspire anyone whose life has been touched by fear, suffering, and loss.

    " When my book club chose this book for this month, my heart sank. I wasn't ready for heavy depressing stories about the Rwandan Holocaust and was dreading reading it. I am not a great TV watcher so didn't know that inspiration guru Wayne Dyer had met Immaculee Ilibagiza and convinced her to publish her memories of surviving the genocide. She is, indeed a remarkable woman: beautiful, truly forgiving, and her faith so strong that she was able to come through the experience in such a way that she has been able to be an agent for healing and reconciliation. Her memoir begins with an account of a happy childhood in a Tutsi family. Her father was an educator and her parents devout Catholics. Emaculee describes how their lives of community leadership, and her siblings' lives as students unraveled in the madness of inter tribal conflict when in three months one millions Tutsis were slaughtered. The most grueling time was when Imaculee was hidden a tiny bathroom of a local pastor's house with eight other Tutsi women for almost three months. Emaculee's life of constant prayer helped her survive when many times she could hear the killers just inches away. She and two brothers were the only survivors from her family.Her willingness to listen to her guidance led her out of Rwanda and ultimately to marry a man who worked for the UN. They now have two children and live in the United States. There are many stories of survival but Imaculee's is surprisingly upbeat. I am giving it my highest rating and am glad I read it. "

    " One of the best stories I have read in a long time. It would make great required reading in school. Amazing woman. "

    " Watching the news and listening to horrifying stories of what humans are capable of doing to one another seem irrelevant after reading this book. The depth of pain, and then the ability to forgive are extremes of the human experience that will leave you feeling as if someone just pushed the world off it's axis, even just a tiny bit. "

    " Great book. Forgiveness is a powerful thing. Immaculee is a remarkable lady. Reminds me of "The Hiding Place," by Corrie Ten Boom. Two great books. "
