Strength In What Remains

You can bet I'm snatching this book up the day it comes out from the publisher.

Deo grew up in the mountains of Burundi, and survived a civil war and genocide before seeking a new life in America. In New York City he lived homeless in Central Park before finding his way to Columbia University. But Deo’s story really begins with his will to turn his life into something truly remarkable; he returns to his native country to help people there, as well as people in the United States.

Strength in What Remains is a testament to the power of will and friendship, and of the endurance of the soul.

Tracy Kidder also wrote "Mountains Beyond Mountains" about Paul Farmer. It was a real inspiration to me!
