5.0 out of 5 stars The Forgotten Divide, 3 Dec. 2012
This review is from: The People In Between: A Cyprus Odyssey (Paperback)
Vietnam was divided, Korea still is, but who remembers Cyprus? That was one of the reasons I chose to read Gregory Lamb's The People In Between: A Cyprus Odyssey. Cyprus is a divided country, and the people who have suffered most are the people in between, the Greek and Turkish Cypriots. Through the lives of one American-Cypriot family we get a riveting story of outside interference, of foreign countries messing with Cyprus's sovereignty. Accepting her brother Nils' invitation to tend an artist's shop, Kiraz "Nora" Johansson goes to Cyprus, where she meets Cypriot Aydin Kostas, and visits places her American military father and Cypriot mother visited when they courted thirty years before. The tragic, recent history of Cyprus comes alive, a rare and beautiful country. Nora and Aydin fall in love and search for Nora's aunt who was separated from her mother in the turmoil following independence. Brother Nils and Father Sven play important parts in the series of wanderings and adventures in Cyprus, France and the United States. Mother Hanife can't for she has died in childbirth. This fast moving account of the loves, setbacks and sacrifices of one military family will keep you glued to the pages and show you what our people in uniform are made of.
