Ilibagiza, a young university student, miraculously survived the savage killing spree in Rwanda that left most of her family and friends, and more than a million of her fellow citizens, dead.

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. Immaculee Ilibagiza, a young university student, miraculously survived the savage killing spree that left most of her family and friends, and more than a million of her fellow citizens, dead. As hundreds of killers hunted for her, Immaculee formed a profound and transforming relationship with God that transcended the bloodshed and butchery - a relationship that enabled her to emerge from the slaughter with a spirit purged of hatred and a heart brimming with forgiveness. Immaculee's astonishing story of survival was documented in her first book (with Steve Erwin), LEFT TO TELL: Discovering God Amidst the Rwandan Holocaust. In LED BY FAITH, Immaculee takes us with her as her remarkable journey continues. Through her simple and eloquent voice, we experience her hardships and heartache as she fights to survive and find meaning and purpose in the aftermath of the genocide. It is the story of a nave and vulnerable young woman, orphaned and alone, navigating a bleak and dangerously hostile world with only an abiding faith in God to guide and protect her. Immaculee 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. She struggles along with her country to heal from the wounds of war and to keep hope, love, and forgiveness alive, then eventually emigrates to America to begin a new chapter of her life - a stranger in a strange land. With the same courage and faith in God that led her through the darkness of genocide, Immaculee discovers a new life that surpasses anything she could have imagined while growing up in a tiny village in one of Africa's poorest countries. It is in the United States, her adopted country, where she can finally look back at all that has happened and truly understand why God spared her ... so that she would be left to tell her story to the world.
