About the Author:

Consolee Nishimwe is a survivor of the 1994 genocide against Tutsis in Rwanda and lived through the horrors of that genocide at age fourteen. Consolee suffered insurmountable physical and emotional torture for three months, hiding from place to place to evade capture and certain death. In the end, she miraculously survived with her mother and younger sister, but her father and three young brothers were savagely murdered. During her period in hiding, her faith was continuously tested, and she struggled to reconcile that faith with the atrocities she was being subjected to. Over time, Consolee succeeded in discarding the burden of carrying vengeful thoughts against those who were persecuting her and instead placed their ultimate fate into God's hands. Consolee's miraculous and inspiring story of survival is a grim testament of hope and faith triumphing over tragedy and provides lessons that will help anyone who is grappling with difficulties in their lives. She is a committed speaker on the genocide, a defender of global women's rights, and an advocate for other genocide survivors. She now lives in New York.
