Five Star Rating Louise Barton's SO FAR TO RUN Motivates Us to Live Life Courageously
There are few books that have impacted me so deeply as Louise Geesedeh Barton's SO FAR TO RUN. The true story takes us into not just the horrific injustices that people around the world face but what some are doing to make it no matter what the circumstances.

Louise shares her amazing journey of being a refugee and and having to life her life on the run, leaving everything she knows just to be able to have a chance at survival. This is one of those books that helps us to understand the difference in just living life and appreciating the gift of life. . . .

Five Star Rating This Book Should Be Read by Millions and Millions [Read the full review.]
Rarely is a memoir written in such singularly powerful fashion as this one. With simple, vivid descriptions, the author plunges the reader headfirst into a world of conflict and terror, sweeping the reader along with her as she lives the life of a hunted refugee in a land wracked by war and chaos.

Writing passionately but without passing judgment on even the most hurtful of her tormentors, her voice is powerfully genuine and begs to be listened to.

. . . Her memoir tells a tale that is little known in the world today but affected vast thousands upon thousands, and it must and should be read by still millions and millions more.

Captivating, horrifying, and beautiful, Louise’s story serves as inspiration for all.
