One Way Tickets by Renée Levine

This review is a bit crazy since I am writing a review of a book I wrote. So, I won't critique it, I will simply tell you that I wrote about my life from the perspective of a woman whose family, three generations of them, left home, never to return. Each was issued a one way ticket.

All this more or less began in upper Silesia in the middle of the 19th century and it ended, with me, in Paris via England and the United States with short stops en route. It is the story of a time when loss of family and the transplanting of lives was commonplace. It may, in fact, be also a thoroughly contemporary story.

The book was designed by Sylvia Winter who is a professional designer and who made it beautiful by including many photos taken at the time.
