Over a Thousand Hills, I Walk with You

By Hanna Jansen

Based on the moving and horrifying true story of a young survivor of the Rwandan Genocide, as told to her adoptive mother.

Before that fateful April day, Jeanne lived the life of a typical Rwandan girl. She bickered with her little sister, went to school, teased her brother. Then, in one horrifying night, everything changed. Political troubles unleashed a torrent of violence upon the Tutsi ethnic group. Jeanne's family, all Tutsis, fled their home and tried desperately to reach safety. They did not succeed. As the only survivor of her family's massacre, Jeanne witnessed unspeakable acts. This haunting story was told to Jeanne's adoptive mother, and here she makes unforgettably real the events of the 1994 Rwandan genocide.

  • A survivor's story of the carnage and chaos that overwhelmed her quiet suburban life, and transformed it forever.
  • Incredible advance reviews from Fergal Keane, Emma Thompson and Berlie Doherty.
  • Serialisation rights and first interview sold to major national Sunday newspaper.
