A Thousand Sisters

Lisa Shannon, Author; Journalist

How can a single moment change your life and the lives of others? With grace and integrity, Shannon shares her transformation from lapsed idealist to leader of the first national grassroots effort for Congolese women. Anchored by human bonds that terror cannot touch, Shannon explores the world's deadliest war through the harrowing but hopeful stories of the women she has helped and the relationships she has formed.
