Publisher Description

In October of 1990, four members of Tracy's family were assassinated in Lebanon in what is still referred to as the worst massacre of the Lebanese Civil war. Those killed were her father Dany, her step-mother Ingred, and two step brothers, Tarek and Julian aged 7 and 5 respectively. Only Tracy's 1-year-old sister, Tamara, who was asleep in her crib and believed not to be seen during the raid, survived. Tracy was visiting in the United States at the time. Since those tragedies, she began to live and practice her messages of peace through her writing. Her first book published in France, "Au Nom Du Pere" (In the Name of the Father) won the prestigious Prix Verite (Prize of Truth) by the city of Cannes, France in 1991. It is written in autobiographical form and speaks of her life growing up in a prominent political family during the civil war (1974 - 1990) in Lebanon and it culminates with the assassination of her family members.
