Left To Tell - Excellent Reading For Mature Reader
4 stars By Glenda, Feb 27 2010
Informative & easy to read.  Out of stock at present but available in West Australian Libraries. Due to graphic descriptions of genocide killings, only suitable for Mature Reader, OR PG REQUIRED.  The main story is of her amazing spiritual journey, forgiveness, great faith & trust in God.  Her 2nd continuing book, Led By Faith, is also very good but I recommend Left to Tell be read 1st.
