Publisher's Summary

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. Immaculée 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. Immaculée's remarkable story of survival was documented in her first book, Left to Tell: Discovering God Amidst the Rwandan Holocaust.

In Led By Faith, Immaculée takes us with her as her remarkable journey continues. Through her simple and eloquent voice, we experience her hardships and heartache as she struggles to survive and to find meaning and purpose in the aftermath of the holocaust. It is the story of a naïve and vulnerable young woman, orphaned and alone, navigating through a bleak and dangerously hostile world with only an abiding faith in God to guide and protect her.

Immaculée 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, Immaculée flees to America to begin a new chapter of her life as a refugee and immigrant - a stranger in a strange land.

With the same courage and faith in God that led her through the darkness of genocide, Immaculée 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 Immaculée can finally look back at all that has happened to her and truly understand why God spared her life . . . so that she would be left to tell her story to the world.

Everything was perfect

This book was inspiring and beautifully written. Would recommend highly.
The narrator did a good job with this. She even added a bit of laughter to suit the words. It was perfect

After reading left to tell…

I never thought that any book could compare to my favorite book left to tell by immaculate, however this book is such a testimony to our father’s faithfulness and love.

Interesting perspective

I wasn't sure if I liked this at first. The writing is very direct and simple which isn't bad but sometimes felt a little flat. However, I did enjoy being inside her head. She can be a bit repetitive but hearing her talk about her faith gave me a different perspective into her Catholic prayer life and her relationship with God. Basically this book is following her prayers throughout her journey. It's rare to get to hear a person's perspective on their relationship with God that just presents itself as it is instead of preaching it to you.

My faith restored

I haven't listened to an audible book for several months. You would think during this 2020 pandemic when my life was put on pause for months during my business shutdown I'd have all the time in the world. Somehow by the power of intention where my heart was seeking deeper meaning to life and during this divided Presidential election I was led to her story. Could not stop listening to the powerful words that Immacculee Ilibagiza lived to tell. My dormant faith has been reawakened and restored. All glory to God for reminding me about forgiveness and to pray, have faith to believe and receive. I DO believe in miracles as her testimony is full of them.

A Message to Share

I have read this book prior to listening on Audible. The message, told in first person by the author, facilitated some much-needed healing in my life. My boys experienced the same tragedy that I did. Finding this brutally honest book in audible form has allowed them to heal as well and for me to share my journey with them.
Thank you, thank you, thank you Immaculee. Your willingness to share God’s grace in your life, along with your human frailties and temptations to doubt, convict me. God Bless

The world needs to learn from this experience

We shouldn't let the suffering that has occurred in history be in vain by repeating the same mistakes. Those of us in countries that are deemed safe should not be so flippant about mocking and dehumanising groups we disagree with, no matter how awful they may be, because even in our words we sow the motive of us vs them, one group more morally deserving than the other as if we know with certainty that we would not be the same as our opponents if roles had been reversed. We might think our dehumanising would never be taken so far as genocide, but it starts with this seed, with this motive in the heart, and is it not arrogance to presume that we are somehow more morally advanced that our own country would stop things before they reached such a level?
There are powerful ways to put an end to the cycles of oppression, for consequence and justice to occur, without resorting to dehumanising our 'enemy'. So much history shows us time and time again how this only leads to repeated cyclic harm. Bless the author for sharing this story, a light to humanity.
