Andrew V M Young, 15 Feb. 2016 “A timely Book”
This is a timely book written by Rory O’Keefe. Sincere and revealing interesting research, it has been well documentated and tells a credible human interest story in a still evolving African and Middle Eastern world at a troubled time.
Written from the heart, yet dispassionate, it tells the story of two brothers and the part sheer luck plays in lives. The excellent illustrations and photosgraphs that accompany the text give added value to what is really a very good book on a number of different levels.
Mr O’Keeffe clearly feels that this is a timeless story that needs to be told, especially when the tragedy of refugees and migrants looks set to colour the next decade. I found it a moving and honest book.
