I can't tell you how many people, over the past 25/30 years have dropped off books saying "you must read this". Thi
s book was as good a read that I've had in the last 20 years. Not only is it written in simple English (like James Patterson) but the subject matter of Frank's life was outstanding. I'm ordering 12 of these through Amazon to give as gifts. This was a spectacular read.
Amazing writing...amazing story! This is a dramatic and endearing story of a young boy adjusting to life in Palestine after his family had the wisdom and foresight to escape from Nazi Germany, and then in his young teens to undergo yet another major transition: a new life in America. I found the story to be powerful and optimistic, written with a crisp and easy flowing style. A must read...one that takes the reader into the soul of a man determined to make it in America.

Marilyn Gottlieb has truly captured the life of one of my oldest friends. I have known Frank Levy since we met at Evander Childs High School in the Bronx. Although I have known Frank for the better part of 65 years, the book opened parts of his life which I had never known. The story is one of dreams; rememberances of childhood in Germany; growing up in Israel and finally, life in the US. His travels around the world coupled with his very fine business abilities are to be truly admired. As one reads this book, one has to admire just how Frank reinvented himself to meet the demands of different business opportunites.He speaks of his good fortune to be an American. "I felt so lucky to be an American,"to have my children born in America, to be educated in America, to be free to fly a kite on the beach with my grandchildren in America. I feel for those who don't have the same opportunites and who don't know what they are missing." This is the story of my lifelong friend, a great American.
