Some books just make you cry. Hence, you have our melancholy suggestions.
Neighbor turned against neighbor, and within 3 months 1 million Rwandans lives were violently ended. This book is written by a Tutsi who was hidden by a Hutu in the midst of the genocide. As a survivor, she writes through the horrific pain and guilt of being alive while her loved ones were buried. She writes about her Catholic faith sustaining her and how the message of Jesus' love and peace can rebuild a war torn country.
As my hero here on the home front read a moving paragraph towards the end of the book to me, his eyes watered. I know this has to be the real deal to illicit such a response from my Mr. Unemotional.
Another Ben read. This one I hope to read too. The author seems to have a great conversational writing style. This is the reason I often choose books by their titles.
After adopting, I now want to understand more about the life of orphans everywhere. This book will incite anger and cause more mixing of ink and tears. The great news is that the book has an incredible ending.
This is an insider view into Islam and how the pure message of Jesus will cause internal friction to any other worldview. Though externally there may be rejection of truth, Jesus used a persevering Christian to love a seeker of meaning into the Meaningful Life. This qualifies as an ink and tears book, because the author had to weep as his journey to Christ meant his family and community turned their backs on him.
