Read full description of the books Running the Rift:Jean Patrick Nkuba dreams of becoming the first Rwandan to run in the Olympics. But Jean Patrick is a Tutsi and his kind are not supposed to win.
When the president's assassination plummets the country into suden and bloody chaos, Jean Patrick is left without protection and without any choice. He must run: from his home, from his family, from the woman he loves. Finding them again will be the race of his life.
Evoking the raw beauty of Rwanda and the tragedy of its recent past, Running the Rift is a truly stunning novel of a people's trauma, of lives lost, and loves salvaged.
