    doc ä text Ester's Child☆ tushnahram Ester's ChildI'm the author of this book and although I generally write the stories of Muslim women since an early age I was instinctively drawn to the lives of Palestinians who lost their homes and country Jews who survived the Holocaust and Germans who lived under Hitler After reading all the books in my small school library I started saving money to start my book collection At age 15 the first book I purchased was THE RISE AND FALL OF THE THIRD REICH by William Shirer later reading BERLIN DIARY and RETURN TO BERLIN by the same author Early on I also read all the books written by Hermann Wouk and Leon Uris authors who wrote about the Jewish experience I was also drawn to read everything written about Hitler and most captiv

    doc ä text Ester's Child☆ tushnahram Ester's ChildThis book is very well written has a good plot and well developed interesting characters The reason I am giving it five stars is because of the way it takes the historical Palestinian Israeli conflict down to a very personal individualfamily level allowing the reader to experience the individual pain and conflict without at least from what I recall getting swayed too much one way or the other politically When I finished the book read it twice but not recently I thought that the conflict is certainly not an easy one there is no easy answer and neither side can claim to be completely right or completely wrong That is not meant to make a political statement; I am merely saying that the pain on an individual level runs deep A very worthwhile read

    doc ä text Ester's Child☆ tushnahram Ester's ChildGenerations of three families Jewish Arab and German are affected by the turmoil of the Israeli Palestinian conflicts from WW II and on These families are also intermingled in unlikely ways The story was somewhat predictable and love affair parts were unnecessary A New Testament scripture verse was taken out of context With all this there was great value for me in reading the historical explanations throughout the story I was glad to see a pretty good balance of the pain and losses and suffering experienced by both Jews and Palestinians

    doc ä text Ester's Child☆ tushnahram Ester's ChildI really love Historical fiction This story is set during the conflicts over Jeruselem after WWII I enjoyed this book because it showed you two very loving families one Arab one Jewish and the horrible struggles they went through during this time period Most of the time all I've heard about is the Jewish side It also showed the dehumanization of each side by killing I liked it but wasn't that impressed with the ending
