For three months in the spring of 1994, the African nation of Rwanda descended into one of the most vicious and bloody genocides the world has ever seen. Immacul#65533;e Ilibagiza, a young university student, miraculously survived the savage killing spree that left most of her family, friends, and a million of her fellow citizens dead. Immacul#65533;e's remarkable story of survival was documented in her first book, Left to TellIn Led By Faith, Immacul#65533;e takes us with her as her remarkable journey continues and she struggles to find meaning and purpose in the aftermath of the holocaust.Immacul#65533;e fends off sinister new predators, seeks out and comforts scores of children orphaned by the genocide, and searches for love and companionship in a land where hatred still flourishes. Then, fearing again for her safety as Rwanda's war-crime trials begin, Immacul#65533;e flees to America to begin a new chapter of her life as a refugee and immigrant-a stranger in a strange land. It is here that Immacul#65533;e discovers a new life that was beyond her wildest dreams as a small girl in a tiny village in one of Africa's poorest countries. It is in the United States, her adopted country, where Immacul#65533;e can finally look back at all that has happened to her and truly understand why her life was spared . . . so that she would be left to tell her story to the world.
