Format: Paperback
Right from the first page this story grabbed me and wouldn't let me go. It's a story of depravity and redemption, and the horror of it is that it's a true story. What the girls went through is unbelievable, and how such wide scale abductions could occur in Northern Uganda without anyone doing anything to stop it is devastating. Joseph Kony, the leader of the Lord's Resistance Army is an insane psychopath, and I was shocked that someone like him could have so much power. I was also especially touched by the strength of the mothers, who travelled the world, even appearing on the Oprah Winfrey Show, in their mission to get their girls freed from their captors. Beyond keeping me hooked through the drama of the lives of child soldiers and sex slaves, the book gave me a solid understanding of the inter-related politics and Western culpability in this tragic war -- which is now Africa's longest war and still ongoing. Everyone should read this book, to understand and to be inspired by the heroes who fought to rescue the girls. I finished this book two weeks ago, and find myself still thinking about it, and even dreaming about it.

Kathy Cook has done an excellent job of relaying the kidnapping of the 139 Aboke girls by the Lord's Resistance Army, and the lives of the 30 who were not subsequently set free. Valued for their education, intelligence and ability to speak English, the Aboke girls were highly prized as wives of Joseph Kony and his senior commanders. Their lives were hell. The author describes also the background to the conflict in Uganda, the government of Musevini, Joseph Kony and the inner workings of the LRA, various peace initiatives to end the conflict (in Uganda and Sudan), and the many efforts to bring the Aboke girls home. Kathy Cook has done her research well: this is a compelling book, and not a little scary. For my own reading style, there are two things missing from this book: a map, so that the reader can relate to the journeys and locations of the girls and the LRA; and an index: this book would make excellent reference material, but not without an index.

This was an amazing account of the events from the abduction of 139 girls form St. Mary's school in Uganda and the efforts of incredible people like Sr. Rachel to get the girls back to safety and out of the controls of Joseph Kony, leader of the Lord's Resistance Army
I was particularly interested in the book since I will be attending the university graduation of two of the girls - one being Grace Acan who was highlighted in this book.
I would love to get in touch with the author Kathy Cook to tell her that I will in Uganda for this incredible celebration.

What a sheltered life I've lead to not know about the tragedies of child soldiers in Uganda. We should be inspired by the faith of these girls and the hope they share with their wounded country.

HASH(0x9f9f22c4) out of 5 stars Very brave women April 10 2012
By Debra L. McIver - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Although a little reluctant to read this book, I was compelled to learn more about the awful situation in Uganda and surrounding countries in Africa. This story is about the brave girls and women who were kidnapped, raped, and made to become soldiers and slaves of Joseph Kony. These particular girls attended a school run by the Comboni Missionary Sisters. I am a personal friend to several Comboni Missionary Sisters, one of whom had been in Uganda for 20 years. These are truly brave women who want nothing more than to give the African people a better way of life and hope for their future. I was very humbled. This is a story that must be read.

I never heard about this story before. I read a lot about Kony and LRA, I am interested in the modern African history, but this position somehow skipped me. I think now thou, that everybody should read it - description of spirit that cannot be broken.

Very heartfelt to read. I kept putting it down because of all the pain and agony that it caused. I would recommend this book as a book of reality in full form.

I had read Thirty Girls and didn't care for it, but really liked this Stolen Angels because it did not have any fiction woven in, just very factual.
