Publisher's Description

In 1994, 16-year-old Eric Irivuzumugabe climbed a cypress tree and remained there for 15 days without food or water. He wasn't trying to win a bet with his friends--he was attempting to save his life. Eric is a survivor of the 1994 Rwandan genocide that claimed the lives of 800,000 people in just 100 days. In the midst of indescribable loss, and without a job, a home, or an education, Eric was determined to start a new life for himself and his two surviving brothers. My Father, Maker of the Trees is the story not only of his physical survival, it is the story of his spiritual rebirth and the role he is playing in the healing and redemption of his land and people. His incredible account will show readers the reality of evil in the world as well as the power of hope. Eric's message of God's relentless love through our darkest circumstances will encourage and inspire.

    Every tree is sovereignly planted by God for a reason bigger than we know. This quote is by the authors uncle sums up this incredible story. My Father, Maker of the Trees is the personal account of Eric Irivuzumagabe, a survivor of the 1994 Rwandan genocide.Im not familiar with the Rwandan accent, but the narrator, Dion Graham, had a foreign accent which draws the listener into the world of Eric Irivuzumagabe. Graham was animated and full of expression. I appreciated the beautiful and seemingly authentic pronunciations of Rwandan words and names.I dont know if reading My Father, Maker of the Trees would have had the same effect, but hearing it painted vivid scenes in my head. I felt as if I were watching it on a screen or running along side the fleeing Tut-sis.This story reminds me of Joseph in the Bible (even though Eric was not a Christian at the time of the genocide). God used the evil in Erics life for His perfect plan. Eric repeatedly speaks about Gods sovereignty.This story struck a chord in me because Im a houseparent. Ive never been an orphan or experienced trauma like the orphans of the Rwandan genocide, but I work with children that have trauma ingrained in their memories. Eric mentions houseparents briefly, but he calls all Christians to obey the charge of James 1:27: caring for the widows and orphans.This review was written as part of the christianaudio Reviewers Program.

    My husband and I both listened to "My Father,Maker of the Trees" in the car as we would gofrom place to place. We both thoroughly enjoyed listening to it. It gave us an idea ofwhat it must have been like to live through something as horrible as genocide. The voice was terrific and music so appropriate. Just aninspirational story and we both felt blessedhearing it and plan on passing it around in the family.
