Acts of Faith: Philip Caputo

Beautiful and tragic (the narrator tells you it's going to be in the prologue), Acts of Faith recounts the intertwining stories of relief workers, Arabs, and rebels during the Sudanese civil wars in the 1990s. Caputo impressively delivers loads of information, character development, and plot. For me, it helped me figure out further the situation in the Sudan and how ungodly complicated and daunting and morally ambiguous it can be. Toward the end, the book got a little contrived as one character tries to clear his conscience after the deaths of other characters, but I still recommend this highly.
