Aniko: The Stranger Who Loved Me by Dr Bob Rich is a book that should be required reading world wide. Masterfully laying out for our dissection and observation the horrors of war, the evils of discrimination, the devastation of greed and the destruction of politicking while at the same time experiencing the very strength of all that is good in the human condition. Dr Bob Rich draws the reader into the story.
Aniko should have been diminished by the very barriers that were erected before her, but she rose above the barriers with intelligence, wit, charm, and an abiding sense of what she knew to be right and true and good. Aniko creates for herself and her family a future that is stripped from her, and she recreates the future only to have it also stripped from her. Friends, family members and mentors taken from her in one manner or another, many of them killed and yet Aniko rises again and again. The straw that should have broke the camels back came when the man she adored and loved sent her first born son, Robi Reich away from Hungary to Australia with a disgruntled uncle. On the other side of the world the adolsecent Robi Reich rose above his own barriers of being an adolescent immigrant half a world away from his family and evolved into the masterful author, Dr Bob Rich, a professional grandfather, a revered and respected clinical psychologist, a global environmentalist, mudsmith, and a darn good bloke. If I have not convinced you to buy and read this book, the failing is with me, not with the book or the author!
