Promising review: "This is an incredible story, especially because it is based on actual events, people, and places. It is one of those stories that you can't stop thinking about even when you put the book down. I found myself wanting to talk with someone about the atrocities Pino witnessed, the improbable coincidences, miracles and twists and turns his life took, and the range of raw human emotions described throughout the book: indescribable joy and triumph, pure terror, crushing guilt, murderous rage, utter and complete despair and redemption. The reader walks alongside Pino through every one of these human feelings we are blessed and cursed to experience. It is exhausting at times. This book is more than mere entertainment. I don't think anyone could make up a more heart-wrenching, miraculous, and fascinating story. It would seem too far fetched." —Jennifer Preece
