 This magnificent book by author Harvey Yoder tells the story of a war torn country {Liberia}, and the children who endured the pain and terror that the war brought.Their journey are captured in this book.Some of these children gained happy endings by surviving a brutal war, but sad trails led them there." The purpose of this book is not to entertain but to create awareness of the pain and spiritual darkness that abound in much of Africa in general and in Liberia in particular" (Yoder). I encourage everyone to read this book, it is a story of triumph, perserverance, tragedy, terror, and it will leave you with a heart full of compassion!!

If we are to teach real peace in this world, and if we are to carry on a real war against war, we shall have to begin with the children. -Mohandas Gandhi-
