Reviews
"An inspiring story, showing how perseverance, common courtesy and bravery can overcome seemingly insurmountable odds."
--Winnipeg Free Press

"A solid story of hope prevailing over despair. . . . With its . . . comforting message of the strength of family, this story should resonate."
--Kirkus Reviews

"While readers will feel confident that the siblings will arrive at their destination, numerous menacing challenges, from lions to starvation, create suspense. Walters . . . captures the hope and need driving Muchoki and Jata through empathic writing and a brisk plot."
--Publishers Weekly

"Inspired by real people and events, Walters places forgiveness at the center of an adventurous story of survival in the midst of ethnic conflict. . . . Walters brings a wonderful verisimilitude to the story."
--The New York Times Book Review
