Product Description

This is a novel based on the recent history of Ethiopia and Eritrea. The principal characters of the novel are former participants in the revolution of the 1970s and 1980s, a period marked by a generation’s uprising against the prevailing order—feudal order in Ethiopia, and Ethiopian occupation of Eritrea.

This is a riveting tale of the idealistic fervor of a generation of Ethiopians swept away by the revolution that was to shake and eventually destroy the very foundation of the millennia old feudal monarchy and consume some of them in the process.
--Mohammed A. Nurhussein, MD

This novel once again shows that the most gifted, the most far sighted and the most deserving to lead were obliterated by the least qualified to lead. The heartbreaking events that led to the demise of Berhane Meskel Redda, and other prominent Ethiopian intellectuals is woven into a suspenseful novel. The pain and sorrow in the novel is coupled with hope and forgiveness.
--Yonas Endale Geda, MD

The uniqueness of this novel rests on the initiative to highlight hitherto ignored subject of love and tolerance that prevails and resonates among peoples of both countries. The lesson of this history is that passions need to be guided by a spirit of tolerance and mutual accommodation, a requirement that is in dire need especially now in our region.
--Fentahun Tiruneh
