Summary
Leaving behind his marriage and job in New York, Jonas, the son of Ethiopian immigrants, sets out to retrace his mother and father's trip and weave together a family history that will take him from the war-torn Ethiopia of his parents' youth to his life in the America of today
Summary
Comprised of the chronicles of two physical journeys -- the original undertaken by two Ethiopian immigrants to the U.S. and retraced, 30 years later, by their emotionally numb son -- this tale of immigration and the consequences of imperfect communication will appeal to readers interested in the psychological toll taken by immigrating to a new country and culture. -- Description by Shauna Griffin
