      I just now requested this book from my library, after seeing it at a
      friend's coffee table--I can't wait to read it! It is about the only
      Vatican-approved Marian apparitions in Africa, and it was written by
      the author of the NY Times bestseller "Left to Tell".
      Happy requesting,

      request form right away. This can usually be done online at your

      Product Description
      Thirteen years before the bloody 1994 genocide that swept across
      Rwanda and left more than a million people dead, the Virgin Mary and
      Jesus Christ appeared to eight young people in the remote village of
      Kibeho. Through these visionaries, Mary and Jesus warned of the
      looming holocaust, which they assured could be averted if Rwandans
      opened their hearts to God and embraced His love.
      Much like what happened at similar sites such as Fátima and Lourdes,
      the messengers of Kibeho were at first mocked and disbelieved. But as
      miracle after miracle occurred in the tiny village, tens of thousands
      of Rwandans journeyed to Kibeho to behold the apparitions. For years,
      countless onlookers watched as the Mother and Son of God spoke through
      the eight seers about God's love, sending messages that they insisted
      were meant not only for Rwandans, but for the entire world, to hear.
      Mary also sent messages to government and church leaders to instruct
      them how to end the ethnic hatred simmering in their country. She
      warned them that Rwanda would become "a river of blood"—a land of
      unspeakable carnage—if the hatred of the people was not quickly
      quelled by love. Some leaders listened, but very few believed: the
      prophetic and apocalyptic warnings tragically came true during 100
      horrifying days of savage bloodletting and mass murder.
      After the genocide, and two decades of rigorous investigation, Our
      Lady of Kibeho became the first and only Vatican-approved Marian (that
      is, related to the Virgin Mary) site in all of Africa. But the story
      still remains largely unknown. Now, Immaculée Ilibagiza plans to
      change all that. She made many pilgrimages to Kibeho both before and
      after the holocaust, personally witnessed true miracles, and spoke
      with a number of the visionaries themselves. What she's discovered
      will deeply touch your heart.
