Sinossi

This is a Historical Novel. Paul was in Ethiopia as a Technical Specialist to the Ministry of Education from 1983 through 1985. While there he met the individual in this book although all of the names have been changed to protect the innocent. It is a moving story about two young girls who were orphaned when their father killed their mother, rather than watch her slowly starve to death during one of that country's long droughts. To perform this dastardly deed, he took his family out into a deep wooded area. There he killed his wife and ran off leaving the children to their own destiny. They were miraculously saved by two hunters and the story then becomes a portrait of the youngest child's courage as she grew up in an orphanage in Addis Ababa. Being able to avoid the Socialist's grip on her life, she made it to London where she became a prized student at the Edinborough University. She became involved and was married, only to be kicked out of their wedding bed when her new husband discovered she had been a victim of female circumcism. She then took up the banner against female abuse and became a well traveled advocate for women world wide. She received her Doctorate degree at the University and returns back to Addis Ababa to teach at the University there.

A courage person to continue to go back, knowing she was going two steps forward and one step back. She witnessed unnecessary deaths and cruelty and couldn't do anything at the time. Great book. Highly recommend this book.

5.0 su 5 stelle One of many tragedies of Africa 22 ottobre 2000
Di Dan Georgescu - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
I appreciate the fact that he brings to light one of the many african tragedies in a simple honest way. He is an excellent poet with a lot of sweetness in the words of his poetry, and he has decided to write this book more like a newspaper redactor, in an editorial way. I think that is appropiate. Like many other countries, the drama is amplified by the communist times and the dictatorship.The part in the book, where he describes Ethiopia, makes the reader to wish he could travel to that country. The poem at the end of the book is beautiful, of excellent quality, which does a lot of sevice to the country.

Di JOYCE HILL - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
FROM THE START OF THE BOOK I FELT IT WAS BASED ON A TRUE STORY IT KEEP ME INTERESTED AND I DID NOT WANT TO PUT IT DOWN. I BECAME VERY INVOLVED WITH HER LIFE, WHAT IT WAS LIKE AND WHAT IT WAS GOING TO BE AT THE END. I FELT SORROW AND HAPPINESS ALL AT THE SAME TIME..THE CHARACTOR WAS STRONG AND THAT COMES ACROSS ALSO, SHE JUST NEVER GAVE UP AND I FELT VERY GOOD AT THE END OF BOOK... I'M STRICKLY A MYSTERY READER BUT I FOUND THIS A REFRESHING CHANGE......

4.0 su 5 stelle An Eye-opening View Of A Different Culture 9 novembre 2000
Di Karel Krieger - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
I was shocked at the innocent lack of knowledge about her own body. Then to learn of such mutilation in such a way brought tears to my eyes.
Our sex education system in this country may be too forthright in some things, but perhaps it is better then no knowledge at all.
For the most part, Mr. Rice writes a compelling story about a very different culture. I found it difficult to lay the book down.
