Olive Fleming Liefeld, widow of the missionary Peter Fleming, relates her version of the events already familiar to readers of Elisabeth Elliot’s Through the Gates of Splendor. Olive describes details of the fateful trip in 1956 during which Pete, Jim Elliot, and three others were killed by Waorani Indians in Ecuador.
In 1989, Olive returned to Ecuador and met the Indians who were responsible for her husband’s death. There she discovered previously unknown pieces of the puzzle and gained new insight into the events themselves. She came away with a deeper understanding of the ways God works in the lives and destinies of His people.
