As a 16-year-old, the author survived the 1994 Rwandan massacre when he climbed a cypress tree and remained there for 15 days without food or water as the slaughter spread throughout the country. The listener hears unforgettable stories of what he saw from his birds-eye view, including instances of children left for dead amid piles of bodies hacked beyond recognition by machetes. Using rich characterizations and subtle accents, narrator Dion Graham masterfully depicts the horror of genocide. But this is not a memoir without hope, and Graham also captures the author’s belief in the power of God's love to heal Rwanda and its people. The account of 800,000 Tutsis and moderate Hutus killed in 100 days is searing, but both author and narrator craft a spiritual message of vital importance.
