I LOVED this book. It is about a survivor of the Rwandan Holocaust and her experience of learning to forgive and actually love the killers of her family, friends, neighbors, and countrymen.

It is not beautifully written. Her words are simple but her message super powerful. Immaculee Ilibagiza is now ranked in the same category of Victor Frankl for me - unforgettable examples of how to see people who do wrong with compassion, understanding, and even love. I want to be like them.

I would recommend this book to everyone who doesn't mind the painful truth about evil and atrocities in the world. It gets pretty gory.
