I just finished reading Catching Ricebirds and I am caught between heart wrenching pain for what Marcus went through and joy for the transformation that takes place in this incredible story. This book honors the memories of family lost in the war. It brings you along with Marcus to experience his pain and clearly shows why he would want to take revenge for the atrocities he witnessed. But there is so much hope in how God does a powerful work in his life, bringing healing.
