Editorial Reviews

Review

A can t-put-it down page-turner. It is as compelling as the best of fiction, but true. In reading it, in meeting the people he comes to know and love, you will learn about parts of the world which are no more than names on a map for most Western people. You will learn about sorrow and injustice on a scale you can scarcely imagine. But you will also witness the triumph of faith and love and the human spirit. --Catholic News Service

This book is a page-turner about Father James Martin's work with the refugees of east Africa, their unimaginable loss and suffering and their attempts at rebuilding their lives in a foreign land. Throughout there is Fr. Jim's masterful description of place and culture and some amazingly creative and resilient people. Most of all, this is a story about patient, compassionate, enduring love.

this story, though twenty years old is very current. It shows us in a personal way the plight of millions of people around the world. The accent is on PEOLE The author has a way of presenting his protaganists as real persons like the ones we meet in our lives and neighborhoods.

Don't by pass this book because it is written by a Catholic priest. If you do, you will deprive yourself of amazing true stores of African refuges told through the eyes of a very gifted writer. The stories that Father Jim tells of his 2 year tenure in Africa helping refugees are not only heartwarming and entertaining, but bare witness to what others are experiencing in this world. Father Jim's tells of his own feelings as well as those of the refugees he assisted. This is not just a Catholic book for Catholics, rather, it is a great book for the world.
