Praise

“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
