This week's topic is Top 5 Hard Topics

The Bishop of Rwanda: Finding Forgiveness Amidst a Pile of Bones

The Bishop of Rwanda is about the genocide of the Tutsis if Rwanda by the Hutu people also of Rwanda.  It is difficult to read of the horrors that were inflicted on the Tutsis.  It is the worse kind of horror story, because unlike Steven King, Dean Koontz or Lisa Jackson book, this book is nonfiction.

Fallen: Out of the Sex Industry & Into the Arms of the Savior

Much of what this young woman had to endure is difficult to imagine.  It is also fascinating and inspiring in how she was able to overcome and do good in this world and help others

Forty Acres

Forty Acres is the debut novel by Dwayne Alexander Smith.  It is an intense and disturbing story of slavery with an interesting twist the masters are black and the slaves are white.

Mother and the Tiger: A Memoir of the Killing Fields

A very interesting memoir on the author's life during the Khmer Rouge. 

Full Body Burden: Growing Up in the Nuclear Shadow of Rocky Flats

Another very unsettling true story of an area of Colorado, who unknown to most citizens were living near a plutonium factory and later when the public started becoming aware of what the factory actually produced, they were told the area was safe, although it was once designated as "the most contaminated places in America.
