There Is No Me Without You: One Woman's Odyssey to Rescue Africa's Children by Melissa Fay Greene
There Is No Me Without You: One Woman's Odyssey to Rescue Africa's Children

Owlhaven, September 19, 2006

As the mother of two Ethiopian daughters I found this book to be incredibly interesting and touching. The statistics about the problem of AIDS in Africa are jawdropping. But the heart of the book is the story of this woman and the children she helps. Though non-fiction, the book reads like a novel. I read it cover to cover in two very long evenings. A week after I finished it, I was already thinking about reading it again. Except I also wanted to share it with everyone I know-- what a dilemma! I may be buying another copy or two. Read this book for yourself. You will be entertained. Your heart will be touched. And your view of the world will be broadened.
