Catriona's War - Jean Grainger - A Short Summary and Review

House of Stone: A Memoir of Home, Family, and a Lost Middle East - Anthony Shadid - A Short Summary and Review

A short summary of the book House of Stone:

Rebuilding a life and the family's home in Lebanon.

My favorite Anthony Shadid quote from the book:

"Sometimes it is better to imagine the past than to remember it."


Questions to ponder while reading House of Stone:

Where is your home?

Have you ever remodeled?

My thoughts about House of Stone:

An amazing journey through the past and present of Lebanon.

I can't imagine rebuilding a house in a war zone.

I think the chaos would have overwhelmed me.
