About the Book

Fikru Aligaz shares his true-life saga of fleeing for his life from his war-torn homeland of Ethiopia as a teenager in this memoir that highlights an inspiring journey to freedom.

Crossing harsh deserts, he was tossed into prison at border crossings and on the brink of death on more than one occasion.

Undeterred, he continued his quest for a once-in-a-lifetime chance at freedom, even though it meant leaving behind everything he knew. He recalls in vivid detail the seemingly insurmountable challenges and obstacles he encountered on his quest.

He also shares how his journey ignited his faith, noting that time after time, people came into his life to help him realize his goals. Even though the odds were stacked against him, the Lord determined that he would not abandon his faithful servant.
