From 1986 to 2009, Joseph Kony, leader of the Lord’s Resistance Army, abducted over 60,000 children and forced them to be child soldiers in his fight to take over the Ugandan government.
Children as young as 10 years were taken and forced to kill or be killed.
This is their story.
Follow Bruce, Scott, and Sam, three Canadian teens, as they walk alongside Charlie and Eseza, two child soldiers, in their search for freedom and restoration in this action-packed adventure story.
“Donna White’s latest novel has the ability to change people, much like the magical stones referenced in her title: turning despair into hope; and finding strength even among the most vulnerable. The final revelation that peace is stronger than war is a much needed message for our troubled times, and a fitting conclusion to her compelling trilogy.” ~ Patrick Reed, Director/Producer, Fight Like Soldiers, Die Like Children
