The Strange Ways Of Providence In My Life by Krystyna Carmi is an emotional memoir. You will find a score of photographs in the book. These photographs have been taken by author’s father who was a professional photographer. He sent these photographs to his family before the war. The family was living in Israel at that time. The book starts with Krystyna’s childhood. Her childhood that was spent in the family house was full of happiness. Her fun-filled friends included Polish and Ukrainian girls. They all used to play a lot of games. Her schooling in Ukraine was probably the best part of her life.
I liked the touchy way of recollecting childhood memories so amazingly. The smiles and reasons behind those smiles have been compiled in a very heart-warming style. From happy moments of life to the tragic part, all the components have been handled quite well. There are moments when the young girl loses her family. Then there is a long sequence of struggles that that author had to pass through. The Strange Ways Of Providence In My Life by Krystyna Carmi is a fabulous story throughout. It is like traveling through the flashback of Krystyna’s life through her eyes.
There is nothing to dislike in this book. You will love the collection of pictures in the book and their relevance with the story. All this creates a big connect for readers with the story and author. In fact, you become a part of the story. There is a whole journey of happy childhood, the phase of the war, getting lost, struggling without family, and the rescue. Each moment brings in a lot of emotions.
