To Stop a Warlord is a story of both inspiring hope and profound sadness.  The courage of one woman accomplished much in a very dangerous savage place where, honestly, I would never got

This was an amazing book and demonstrates how one person can truly make a difference.  The courage it took for the author to help these children is unimaginable to me.  I enjoyed reading this and have recommended it to friends.

“To Stop a Warlord” is an incredible story about the journey one women takes to find justice for the child victims of war-torn Central and East Africa. While the story is truly one of grace, courage, and determination, at its foundation it is a story of hope and the author’s firm belief that she could and must make a difference in lives that had been brutalized in far away places.  What makes this story different is that the author challenged the previous limits of what a non-governmental organization was willing to contribute to stop brutality and was willing to take risks others were not. Throughout the book, we are challenged to examine how foreign aid can be effective, how violence can be stopped and even more importantly what justice truly looks like. To Stop a Warlord is an inspiring story that is both thought-provoking and hopeful and one I can not recommend enough! I was honored to receive a free advanced copy of this book from NetGalley and the publisher, Random House Publishing Group in exchange for an honest review.
