Review

Melissa Greene is a journalist who writes with the lyricism of a poet and the skill of a novelist Her writing is characterized by a genuine love of whom and what she is writing about as well as a genuine love for the act of writing itself. This is a rare combination and the result is a rare reading experience Washington Post Book World What Greene has written is political history of a rare kind. New Yorker on Praying for Sheetrock This book is as illuminating as it is shocking. New York Times on The Temple Bombing

Product Description

In a tin-walled compound outside Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, a middle-class woman named Haregewoin Teferra suffers terrible personal losses. In grief, she turns to the church, and is presented with two orphans and asked to house them. Haregewoin agrees. Once she opens her gate, she never manages to close it again. Here is a woman who does not run away from HIV-positive and AIDS-orphaned children, brought to her on foot, by bus or by donkey cart. There are over a million AIDS orphans in Ethiopia; There Is No Me Without You tells a few of their remarkable stories through the eyes of a woman whose own life has been altered by them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing story of a real life hero. 17 Oct 2011
By joyce
Format:Paperback
This book shares the most amazing amount of information about Ethiopia, it's history and how the woman in the book strives to help children orphaned by the effects of Aids. The discussion about the possible causes of Aids in Africa and worldwide is very educating, as are the facts about the lack of intervention by the worldwide pharmaceutical industry. Note the name of the book has been changed to 'Orphaned' from original name, which caused some confusion to some in our bookclub.

5.0 out of 5 stars There is No Me with You. 2 May 2011
Format:Hardcover
This is a very impacting book. Although some 427 pages in length, it captures ones attention throughout. One or two very technical chapters about the incidence and remedy-development for AIDS can be challenging but give depth and background to the subject. It is an amazing story of one woman's inspiring service for others in response to tragedy and sorrow in her life. The very real involvement of the author with the main character in the story and also with the whole aspect of caring for AIDS sufferers is woven into the fabric of the book so skilfully.

If you are serious about knowing the facts about AIDS through a "behind the scenes" story, then this book is for you. It is a revelation and an inspiration.

I like biographies and autobiographies and this interested me because having been to Ethiopia and seen the poverty I can identify with the story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quick delivery 3 May 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have just ordered the Orphaned: One Woman's Mission to Save Africa's AIDS children book only yesterday and it has arrived today. Very quick service. This is a used book and generally in a good condition. I am looking forward to reading the book, as I have sponsored children in Ethiopia and have been recommended this book.
