This memoir recounts how a veteran journalist was able to find his way back to God through heartbreaking assignments at disaster sites around the world. In recollections from his childhood, Torres tries to pinpoint what caused him to fall so far from his faith, and he takes the reader on a journey to faith as he reports from Indonesia on the tsunami, from Africa on the AIDS pandemic, and from Haiti on the earthquake.

"It's a book that not only makes for an interesting and fascinating read, but also one that will make a significant difference in your life. I wholeheartedly recommend this little, captivating gem of a narrative, focused on what can give meaning and purpose to your life."

David P. Page, retired Editor of The Florida Catholic and retired Pastor of Holy Name of Jesus Catholic Church.
