bookshelves: first-reads
Read in June, 2010

This was the second first-reads book I have won. I am a girl of many words, yet I feel speechless. I hear the news tidbits of war in other countries on CNN or NPR like so many others, but clearly I have not really heard. This book has given me a more first hand look at the experience of the atrocities on a more personal level. It is more like a glimpse really, because I can not pretend to actually understand or feel what it is like to live through what Almasa, Aziza or the others have survived. It reminds me of the promise of resilience that surely we all possess even if we can not imagine ourselves employing it as these women have. It is beautifully written. A gift really.
