  • Enjoy the comforting story Hope Was Here, a tale of positive determination winning over corruption.
  • Experience the true story of an American high school whose history teacher dangerously tests the power of peer pressure.
  • Read the stunningly beautiful story of a dignified Zulu pastor in mid-1900s South Africa, a land driven by racial injustice.
