A memoir that describes the contradictions and dilemmas of growing up Jewish in internment during the post-British Raj Muslim Pakistan era

San Diego California, USA – WEBWIRE

Because my special empathy with Hazel Kahans narrative comes from also being interned during WWII, growing up neither European nor Asian in China, and revisiting my Asian roots much later in life, I find the account of her return to Lahore enchanting. Despite the books title, the reader will decide whether Pakistan was ever truly her home. What a story! Tom Scovel, author of The Year China Changed
