Just wanted to say how much I have enjoyed reading Matthew Freeman’s book, “Darkness Never Far”. I definitely appreciate the presentation, from the nice cover to the note of introduction, to, of course, the poetry itself.

Mr. Freeman definitely deserves the exposure he gets, in my opinion. I hope there will be more books like this in the future.

Thank you for your contribution to my personal library.

Comment on Between the Two Rivers: A Story of the Armenian Genocide by Sona Stewart http://coffeetownpress.com/between-the-two-rivers-a-story-of-the-armenian-genocide/comment-page-1/#comment-380 Tue, 22 Jun 2010 01:12:02 +0000 http://coffeetownpress.com/?p=331#comment-380 Between the two rivers is the story of a young girl, Mannig, raised in a wealthy family, then having lost everything, her family members, and her life of luxury in Adapazar, Turkey, she journeys through the deserts of Der Zor, and she ends up in the streets of Iraq, starved and tired; she survives the unimaginable conditions by clinging to her happy childhood memories, and to the wisdom passed on to her from her grandmother Haji Doo. Mannig’s persistence, wit, courage, hope, and her unshakable faith, overcome waves of obstacles, and her perseverance finally pays off.

The story climaxes as unexpected turn of events follow; she is reunited with her only surviving family member, her sister Adrine, she manages to convince the philanthropist to enlist her into the orphanage school, where her passion for education is fulfilled, and finally, the story ends on a much happier note, romance, love and a marriage to an Armenian wealthy philanthropist, that brings Mannig back to where the story began, a happy place of belonging and a life of luxury reminiscent of her early childhood.

Aida Kouyoumjian paints in minute details the vivid memories of her mother’s daily experiences. We smell, taste, see, hear… feel, cry and laugh alongside the hero. The powerful depiction of imagery painted in a colorful palette, reminds one of an oriental style painting, we are entertained by exotic places, people, and even humor in the middle of a tragic story.

Kouyoumjian successfully invites us to be witnesses to her mother’s tragic experiences that reflect not just one story but many more of such stories in the history of Armenian genocide and survival.

I recommend this book to everyone.

Sona Stewart
