This is a novel about people who find themselves in the middle of a horrific conflict and how they survive. Their choices affect their families, the people they love, and the course of their lives. Their stories start before the events in Sudan touch them, following them through challenges and triumphs, as they rebuild their lives. What they have in common with the rest of us is that their journeys are about finding out what kind of people they are: Should they try to draw strength from their anger or should they let it go? Is it better to stick with what you know or find the courage to change?

An extraordinarily difficult topic handled with grace and dignity. The writing is so very descriptive in a way unique to the talent of the author. Captivating. A very good education for me about people in unimaginable circumstances. While the story is about such hard times, you will not want this book to end.

The world as most of us know it is a safe and stable place. This story details the lives of the Africans of Darfur and the their reality to stay alive in the apparrent face of Genocide. The author captures the essence of the people who fought and continue to fight for the right to freedom in the Sudan and around the world. This encourages one to be thankful for their freedom and life and to also know they can do something big in a small way to help.
