THE HEART WRENCHING STORY OF THE EFFECT IT HAD ON THE CHILDREN WHEN SUDDENLY WRENCHED FROM THE WARM EMBRACE OF AN EXTENDED EGYPTIAN FAMILY INTO A COLD POST WORLD WAR II GERMAN CITY TO GRANDPARENTS THEY DID NOT KNOW OR UNDERSTAND.
THE REMARKABLE RESILIENCE OF CHILDREN IS DEPICTED SO WELL AS IS THE PAIN AND CONFUSION WHILE REACHING ACCEPTANCE.
THIS READER LOOKS FORWARD TO THE BOOK(S) THAT MUST FOLLOW THIS INTERESTING PSYCHOLOGICAL AND SOCIOLOGICAL DRAMA WRITTEN ON A BACKGROUND OF FOUR QUITE DIFFERENT CULTURES!!
I ENTHUSIASTICALLY RECOMMEND THIS AMAZING BOOK!
This story is so well written and such a joy to read. The author has created a loving adventure loaded with struggle, emotion, happiness and challenge. There is also an educational aspect to this story as we get to feel and share many different cultures.
The author has lived a lifelong dream to become a renowned internationally known and respected surgeon and achieved that goal in spite of a childhood loaded with unbelievable challenges as a young boy matures into becoming a grown adult both personally and professionally.
I highly recommend this book and this author and look forward to future sequels which are referenced as one explores this genuinely exceptional adventure.
I do have one suggestion for future editions. A family tree would help as many of the names may be unfamiliar to some readers. I cannot wait to read the sequel.
The answer is rooted in a story of love and longing based on a fatal accident in a primitive upper Egyptian village over a century ago.
In this rich and powerful story, the author explores his remarkable early life based on a journal, letters and photos, which amply illustrate the book.
A mesmerizing story.
What has lingered for me in the time since I read this beautiful book is the writer's eloquent voice, a view of life in Egypt during particularly tumultuous times (his experiences always striking to read), and a general mood of inquiry and thoughtful exploration. I'm left holding an image of a young boy who longed to escape, who dreamed of flying a glider out of one life and into another, and gratitude that he was able to do that and write this book.
It is, as the subheading suggests, captivatingly unique and yet speaking to all our lives. We are all trees reaching towards the sun. This particular seed--as its brilliantly conceived cover so accurately expresses--was planted in the desert, its roots shallow but broadly and firmly dispersed to receive such nutrients as nature has provided, including a family in which east and west both blend and conflict, in which love is both present and absent. His parents are each fiercely driven by the circumstances of their own pasts to aim for financial and social success; thus our protagonist is half shoved upon this path, half attracted to it--all the while his heart aching for something more. Between the winds of east and west, of affection and abandonment, he is blown while still young--so that the trunk bends in time permanently this way and that, creating a peculiar symmetry and strength as the branches determinedly upright themselves in search of the light.
I highly recommend this rich and fascinating book.
