Good book by new author Meliha Avdic. May is a likeable heroine and the reader's desire for her to find happiness will keep you engaged to the end of the novel. I hope the author's next book will focus on May's father. I think there's a suspensefu...
was no place on earth where she belonged, unless she worked hard to turn the place where she found her self into a home once again. May starts by selecting a café where she aimed to become a regular. She meets the barman, Benjamin (uneducated but smart, who lost his leg in the war), and through their conversations she shares her views and ideas. The topics they discuss are: feminism (as well as men versus women), capitalism, socialism, social issues and decline, religion and science, justice, etcetera. May did not know her father and everyone always believed she never met him. She reveals the shocking secret in this book about who her father was and why she regrets ever wishing, even longing, to know him, to know about him. May claims her life is shaped by the amazing people she was fortunate to meet and call her 'soul mates'. One of them is Alma; a young woman who survived a massacre that killed her whole family, whon walked wounded over hills, through woods to get to a hospital where she stayed to become a doctor. However, even after many years of hard work, she did not have this dream turned into reality. The lives of all these people May knew and loved were shaped by the war and a corrupt and materialistic system that followed, just as Alma's was. May tried her best to improve her society. She found a job as a teacher and volunteered at the orphanage making the best use of the connections she made in the UK. However, when her husband, Harris (soldier by nature, the love of her life) is taken to prison for a crime he did not commit, all that May accomplished is ignored and she is rejected by the society. Eventually, May leaves the city, the civilisation. With only her young daughter by her side, May moves to the mountains to live alone. She writes this story many years later, after a 'Global Catastrophe' and 'Wars of the Sticks' which changed the world and forced many of their friends up to the mountains. Generations that belonged to that changed world did not understand the world May belonged to and blamed May's generation for the way the world had fallen apart. Desperate to make them see the truth, May writes this story about the present from the future; knowing the truth of what has been and remembering what life was really like. This is a story of a woman born under a lucky star but in an age of injustice, corruption and materialism. What is a human closer to; the heavens or the earth?
