I received this book from one of the giveaways. I really enjoyed traveling through time with the author and his life experiences. I was fascinated by all of the details he shared about his family prior to coming to America. It reminded me of the stories I know about my own past. Being a descendant of war torn Germany, with little formal record of the past, I wish I had as much knowledge about my family beginnings as the author has of his. What a gift to have a full understanding of where a person comes from. While reading this book I could truly understand the love and compassion the author has for his family. A very nice read. I devoured this book in three days. I reccomend it to those who are interested in reading about the fabric of family, cross-cultural experiences and history.
