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 are 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. It is, in fact, one of the best compilations of the smiles and reasons behind those smiles 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.
