    Review ✓ The Wifes Tale Ç PDF DOC TXT eBook or Kindle ePUB free The Wifes TaleThis is a bit different type of memoirbiography The author tells the story of her grandmother Yetemegnu Mekonnen who was born in Goudar Ethiopia in 1916 She was married at age eight to a man who was almost thirty years of age Edemanam’ s writing is in a beautiful rhythmic prose The description of the country superstitions and customs of early twentieth century Ethiopia is superb I almost felt as if I was there during the Italian invasion Toward the end of the book she told of the moment that the “chicken scratch in the book became understandable words” as she was learning to read absolutely fascinated me I read this as an audiobook downloaded from Audible The book is almost ten hours Adjoa Andoh does an absolutely fantastic job narrating this book It is her narration of the book that brought the story to life I do not think the book would be as meaningful by my reading it Andoh did the Ethiopian women yell which I could never do even in my mind Andoh is

    Review ✓ The Wifes Tale Ç PDF DOC TXT eBook or Kindle ePUB free The Wifes TaleThe Wife's Tale is a beautiful history of a family that will pull at your heart stringsMy goodness this book was impossible for me to put down This breath taking recount of a woman's life in Ethiopia was truly incredible I'm Canadian and I haven't left North America so reading about other people's lives has always been something I enjoy Seeing into this woman's life and the troubles and triumphs that occurred It's so incredible that there are hardly wordsThis memoir is worth every second and needs to be read by everyone in my humble opinion The life of this stranger and how she lived will give you insight to a world you might not have been aware existed Yetemegnu's life and journey is so mind blowing I highly recommend this b

    Review ✓ The Wifes Tale Ç PDF DOC TXT eBook or Kindle ePUB free The Wifes TaleThe twentieth century history of Ethiopia is told here by the author through the remarkable life of her paternal grandmother Yetemegnu to whom this book is also a personal tribute Although a biography rather than a memoir the author attempts to tell the story through her grandmother’s eyesYetemegnu was born in 1916 and died in 2013 She was married at the age of eight you read that right to a priest who was 22 years older than her and had the first of her 9 children at the age of 14 a tenth pregnancy miscarried S

    Review ✓ The Wifes Tale Ç PDF DOC TXT eBook or Kindle ePUB free The Wifes TaleFor anyone unfamiliar with the 20th century history of Ethiopia this is a wonderful and mind broadening introduction The prime focus of the book is Yetemegnu who we are first introduced to on the day she is married off at eight to a man two decades her senior Yetemegnu’s life encompassed most of the last century and she was regularly caught up in the various turmoils her country went through The author is one of her granddaughters and she has spent many years recording the stories her grandmother told as well as learning from other members of her family what it was like to live through those decades Ethiopia and her citizens often seem worlds apart from anything we know but humans are humans wherever they live and the emotional life of Yetemegnu pours through the book Too emotional perhaps for some Westerners He

    Review ✓ The Wifes Tale Ç PDF DOC TXT eBook or Kindle ePUB free The Wifes TaleI received this book for free through Goodreads Giveaways and have chosen to give my honest opinion about itWhile definitely a touching story it almost seems like an overdone and cliched one While I do recognize that this was the recounting of a true story it seems as if it could have been better written; the writing style was confusing for instance it was hard to distinguish from the narrator and from her own thoughts That being said the events in this book are definitely inspiring and sometimes bittersweet which is refreshing amidst the sea of other contemporary true stories
