What people say about Miracle in Kigali 

"Illuminée Nganemariya’s story is one of great courage in the face of the unimaginable horrors that beset our country in the spring of 1994. It is important that we never forget what happened in Rwanda. Miracle in Kigali plays a role in healing the scars of the Genocide"  H.E. Claver Gatete former Rwandan Ambassador to the United Kingdom

"Miracle in Kigali is an extraordinary document - a unique, tragic, insiders guide to Genocide. This is a book about what a mother will endure to keep her child alive. I read it and wanted to give Illuminee a big hug. She's my hero." Nick Andrews, Director Roger: Genocide Baby

"Reading about real-life atrocity is never going to be something to enjoy, but it doesn't stop you from being glad you read it." Emma Delf Urbane magazine

"Illuminée still cannot explain how she and her son Roger survived. Reading her book, it becomes clear that there were many, many, miracles." Rowan Mantell, Norwich Evening News

"Journey of Hope, Illuminée Nganemariya survived the Rwandan Genocide to escape to a new life in Norwich with her son." Louise Cummings, Norfolk Journal

"I can't say I was delighted at the prospect of reading a survivor's account of the Rwandan Genocide, but from the opening pages, Illuminée Nganemariya's modestly told narrative compels you to follow her bloody journey through Le Pays des Mille Collines--Rwanda, land of a thousand hills." Louisa Sutton, Cambridge Student magazine
