One man’s journey of love, loss and hope for the future
This review is from: Shattered by the Wars (but Sustained by Love) (Kindle Edition)
This was a deeply touching story, written in the first person, as the author experienced the events personally. It is a tale of courage, survival, family connections and most of all love. While there are Christian themes mentioned, anyone would enjoy reading HI-DONG CHAI’s story and should take something away from it. Despite all the tragedies related in the book, the author incredibly and admirably maintains a hopeful outlook on life. This is simply a plainspoken narrative, detailing one man’s personal feelings and losses caused by war. It is an anti-war treatise, but not in a preachy way. It speaks louder than any essay or fictional anti-war novel, because it’s honest and true.
