    Akin

    An excellent book there were three stories in one. A good writer makes you realy care what happens to the characters as they felt like real people. She describes Nice in France so accurately and makes the place come alive

    A rich and rewarding read - stick with it.

    "Akin" is an excellently crafted work that draws the reader into its tales of lost truths and the everyday heroism of the struggle to regain them. The narrative is from the perspective of Noah, a 79 year old New Yorker, returning to Nice for the first time since he was born there in 1940. His entirely unexpected and unplanned-for companion on this journey is his grand nephew Michael, an 11 year old boy with what we quaintly call 'issues'. The brilliance of the work lies in the way the author takes us with Noah on his mental and emotional journey back to the dark days of the war, and forward through the pitfalls of his unexpected new responsibilities as Michael's' temporary guardian.
