Review for Sewing Hope:
Sewing Hope (Dust Jacket Press, 2013) tells the story of Sister Rosemary Nyirumbe, a feisty Ugandan nun who gives hope to young women formerly held captive by warlord Joseph Kony and his Lord’s Resistance Army. For more than 20 years, she has offered a save haven to these former child soldiers when no one else would.
The book and a companion documentary narrated by Forest Whitaker debuted at the Napa Valley Film Festival in northern California.
All proceeds from the sale of each book ($20, cash or check only) go to Pros for Africa, a non-profit organization that supports the work of Sister Rosemary and other humanitarian efforts in Africa.
Sewing Hope is also available on amazon.com.
