I throughly enjoyed this book While I am not an Eritrean I lived in Asmara for most of my elementary school years There used to be a US Military base in Asmara called Kagnew Station I remember my time in Eritrea fondly It was Ethiopia when I lived there The revolution was just beginning when we left I left Asmara the year that Hannah was born 1974 I was 12 years old I have been to most of the larger cities she mentioned in the book The towns of Keren and Massawa had recreation areas for US Military soldiers and sailors and their families I spent many happy hours swimming in the Red Sea in Massawa as a child I too can spot an Eritrean anywhere I go Most of my friends from those days can too They are some of the most beautiful people on the entire continent of Africa in my opinion Even though I am a white American I had a special feeling when I lived there A feeling I have never experienced anywhere else I have ever lived It's like a feeling of being grounded to the Earth It's standing in one of the most ancient places in the world and really feeling it I would love to go back some day I'm sure that most of the Eritreans I knew back then are probably no longer alive I know the revolution and continuing war with Ethiopia were and are brutal I really enjoyed this book and thank Hannah for writing it I thought it was excellent I would love to have some Zigni and Injera for dinner again I need to find an Ethiopian restaurant in South Florida I pray some day they will be blessed with peace again Sorry for the randomness of this review I'm just overwhelmed with good memories

What do you wear to meet your father for the first time In Hannah My Father's PDFEPUB or Pool knew about next season's lipstick colors than she did about Africa a beauty editor for The Guardian newspaper she juggled lattes and cocktails handbags and hangouts through her twenties just like any other beautiful independent Londoner Her white English adoptive relatives were beloved to her and were all the family she needed Okay if I treat it as a first date then I'm on home turf What image do I want to put. I have read stories about adoptees meeting their birth families and I have watched the shows on television about the same thing Never though did I ever imagine what it might be like for someone who was adopted from a third world country to returne to the strange land of their birth The author is very honest and open about her experience I feel that this womans story is very uniue in that we get to read about an African village from a whole different point of view She is not an aid worker who will make the country seem hot smelly and strange She is not a runaway bride that is now telling her story after becoming a famous model making the country sound like paradise gone wrong Hannah Pool gets to be the outsider not just looking in but being embraced into the intimate lives of African villagers

My Father's DaughterArned on her journey forms a narrative of insight wisdom wit and warmth beyond all expectations When I stepped off the plane in Asmara I had no idea what lay ahead or how those events would change me and if I'd thought about it too hard I probably wouldn't have gotten farther than the baggage claim A story that will send shivers down your spine The Bookseller My Fathers' Daughter follows Hannah Pool's brave and heartbreaking return to Africa to meet the family she lost and the father she thought was dea. My Fathers' Daughter by Hannah Pool was a well thought out memoir She took us on a journey through her experience of adoption and retracing her roots The true details of what it was like to be face to face with the family that gave her up nearly 30 years ago This book deserves 4 stars because I felt like I was in Hannah's shoes and a part of her journey back home She shared what it was like to live in a household where no one looked like her in a very respectable manner I enjoyed reading her memoir in a humors way She was able to bring light to her situation and not feel as though she would never be able to find her true identityImagine what it's like to never have seen another woman or man from your own family To spend your life looking for clues in the faces of strangersWe all need to know why we were given up Hannah Pool Although she came to realize that it was actually in her interest to be adopted given the financial circumstances her biological family endured she still needed answers as to why it was her and not her other siblings Who she belonged to where she came from and her blood relatives uestions which she had been receiving all her life but didn't have the answers to In class we just got done with writing children’s stories One of the difficult topics to explain to children was adoption Children who are given up for adoption live their lives wondering why they were separated from their family They want to know if it was their fault or if they could have done something differently in order to prevent the adoption This book is great for teenagers who want to know about others around them and how someone's life can change if they are given up for adoption Or what it's like to live in a household with people you don't look like while knowing you have family across the country and you don't even know their names or what they look like
