5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful book, February 22, 2006
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Left To Tell: Discovering God Amidst the Rwandan Holocaust (Hardcover)
Left to Tell is one of those books that I feel so grateful to the author for taking the time to write, for it offers improvement to us all. It is heart-touching, edifying, and life transforming. It tangibly teaches us, through the author's very real life trials, that there is more to life than we normally see, a divine element, and that life only becomes what it was meant to be when we bind with the spiritual in the depths of our human hearts.

In a way, Left to Tell reminded me a little bit of another fabulous book, Embraced by the Light. But in Embraced by the Light, Betty Eadie had to die to experience another reality. In Left to Tell, author Imaculee had so many thousands die around her, including her dearest family members (I write this weeping), to ultimately discover the truly beautiful Divine Reality that is always with us, if we would only call to It sincerely and passionately enough.

The story in Left to Tell is a tragic story that is still being played out today. Humanity is still plagued by groups of people who feel determined to wipe out other groups of people. The spiritual disease is the same, only the names and labels change. Read Left to Tell and you will learn that the only way to go is Love, and the only thing to offer is forgiveness. You will also learn that no matter what travesty hits you, no matter your age or situation in life, through faith in God's power, you can craft the life He intended for you. Left to Tell is indeed a beautiful book that is highly recommended. And I do thank the author for her sharing.

Thank you for your beautiful review. I could not agree with you more especially when you say "it offers improvement to us all." We must strive to be a better people, more compassionate, loving and forgiving if this world is to survive. With the continued fear, anger and hate that is driving some people of this world to commit horrible travesties and destruction on their fellow human beings we have much to learn from a book such as this. I can only hope that more and more people will read Immaculee's book and be transformed. Since first reading the book and hearing Immaculee speak I have purchased 5 copies as gifts to friends.

PS My parish women's book club just finished reading this book.
