After many false starts I finally got a few videos done the other day of me reading from The Girl in His Eyes, thanks to a patient friend. (The previous ones I did myself were pretty crap, I decided – trying to hold phone while reading from the book was difficult, plus the close up look was not the best.)


I’ve spent the last three hours trying to copy and blog them and was nea...

Fabulous

Beautifully told story with simmering unease and a startling denouement - loved the slow unfolding of Lily as she gains awareness.
Jennie and 2 other people liked Ian Skewis's review of The Girl In His Eyes:
The Girl In His Eyes by Jennie Ensor

“And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about.”

If it’s just a photo session we would not go—but if Obama would listen to what was in our hearts, then we would. The message came back: you are free to say whatever you wish. And so we did! It was quite a serious meeting. We talked about the importance of education. We discussed the United States’ role in supporting dictatorships and drone attacks in countries like Pakistan.
