We enjoyed meeting the author via Skype. She is warm and friendly and very open to all questions and comments. She comes across as the reader's new best friend.

This story gives the reader a brief view of how the middle East is such as mess, politically, socially and economically. The question is how did it become such a mess. Look back at the decisions made by... (read more)

 
  "Held My Interest!"by retiredreaderNE (see profile) 02/27/14
