    Return to Eritrea.Around the time I visited Eritrea I read two books one about an Eritrean refugee making the treacherous journey out of Eritrea and the other about Hannah Pool, a British journalist who was born in a remote village in Eritrea and adopted from an orphanage, leaving a family she had never met They complimented each other and both, in their own ways, educ

    This is s wonderful book about a woman who was adopted from Eritrea, grows up in England and believed that she was an orphan with no family What I liked so much about the book was her honesty She described in detail how she felt about being adopted, then finding out that she had a family that wanted to meet her The anxiety of meeting her real father, and the emotions she ex

    Hannah Pool was born in Eritrea and adopted as a baby The book is about her journey to the land of her birth to meet her family and find out about the life she might have led.I think she is a little too starry eyed about the traditional way of life, her adoption gave her many advantages she would...
