Dreamers of the Day by Mary Doria Russell

Dreamers of the DayRecommended by Tuki in Adult Services…

Tuki’s synopsis:
What a wonderful way to learn the rich history of countries that make up our current Middle East region. A homey school teacher from Ohio embarks on an adventure after the loss of her family to the great influenza following WWI.  Enjoy Agnes’ travel adventure through Egypt and the Holy Land, and experience the momentous decisions made at the historic Cairo Conference of 1921.

She says:
I enjoyed this book on many different levels.  It read like a travelogue of Agnes’ experience through Egypt and the Holy Land, but also greatly enhanced my understanding of historical events that currently have relevance in the Middle East region.
