Great Story! "Craig Biorn has written a great story in Bilan’s Journey of Hope in which he tells us the adventures of Bilan as she flees war-torn Somalia. Somalia is beset with bombings, murder, massacres and all the horrors of a battle for control of the country. Even more interesting than the descriptions of the events in Bilan’s journey, is the view into her mind as she questions, prays, finds hope, experiences despair, and wonders if there will ever be an end to what she is going through. Craig Biorn has given us a wonderful view of the external chaos combined with the internal thoughts, hopes, and emotions of Bilan as she struggles through the mayhem but never gives up her hope for a reunited family in a place where peace can prevail. It’s a wonderful read!" Read more
