A Globe and Mail Best Book of the Year

“A tribute to the human spirit that refuses to give up; to family love that persists in the face of thoughtlessness, repeated violence and denial.” —The Globe and Mail

Stolen Life is ‘a gift of understanding’—A compelling story infused with hope and spirituality.” —The Financial Post

Stolen Life is] the rarest of treasures— an unexpected joy — Here are two friends who prove to one another that individuals can reach across a nation’s mistakes, and offer forgiveness — an amazing collaboration. [A] triumph — Yvonne Johnson and Rudy Wiebe have written the book that will shatter the silence, revealing secrets about stolen land and stolen lives, if only we are brave enough to confront their meaning.” —The Edmonton Journal

“Brilliant— Rudy Wiebe works here like a great jazz guitarist … with consummate skill. An essential [book] for anyone who believes [in] establishing justice.” —The Toronto Star

“The story [is] told as poignantly as Frank McCourt’s Angela’s Ashes, and every bit as heartbreaking as Ann-Marie MacDonald’s Fall on Your Knees. Stolen Life [demonstrates] the humbling and unyielding power of forgiveness, a power that lives on, in spite of everything, in nameless but heroic people like Yvonne Johnson.” – The Georgia Straight
