"So, I finished reading the book today. I don't know that I've ever cried so hard for someone that I have never even met. Her resilience is beyond remarkable. I am from Louisiana, and we are still dealing with the disaster of the recent 1000 year flood that affected more than 1/3 of our entire state. This book reminded me that, on the grand scale, there are others who are suffering far more than we are. I am inspired by her strength, and will remember her story in times of sorrow to keep fighting with chin up! Love always finds a way!"  

               - Jodie Berteau Singer, LA

"To read the story really makes one appreciate life. Thinking of what Christine went through over the course of three months, allows me to realize how lucky I am. Christine has shown immeasurable amounts of determination to survive and demonstrates how to take a lot of negatives and turn them into a positive. This is great reading. I have so much respect for Christine and her "will to survive. " She did just that and credits God for everything in her life. This is a real life happy ending whereby someone with all odds against her, creates an attitude all of us should learn. With God, anything is possible. I am proud to call Christine a dear friend!  Sandy Hoge, GA

"This is an extraordinary story of how a multi-racial and multicultural teenager survived abuse, torture, and the Rwanda massacres. Christine displays incredible inner strength to survive and become a motivational writer and speaker.
The book is filled with pain and suffering as Christine endures an abusive home life and civil war. But, she perseveres the darkness and shows personal strength to emerge into the light. Motivational, Spiritual, 6 stars!"
