At 11 years old, Jean de Dieu Musabyimana became an orphan. It was 1994, and Rwanda was about to be in the horrific grips of genocide. Churches, traditionally seen as places of sanctuary, were now targets. Friends and neighbors who were supposed to protect each other irrupted in a wave of violence. It is through the eyes of a boy that we are escorted into life in rural Rwanda as it begins its tragic events. Love Above All is written with real, personal voice and reveals the intimate details of pain, change, and people, so often obscured in movies and lost to history.
Thrillingly told and full of tragedy and heartbreaking hope, Love Above All captures the emotional power of a disaster and true meaning of forgiveness being the key to unlocking true happiness.
