Overview

THE ODDS ARE

I was born in post-World War II Belgium. My parents lost most of their extended family to the Holocaust, and their marriage is on the rocks. By age five, my father left my mother, thrusting the family into destitution. At that time, it seemed that Humanity was coming back to be a just society. "Aux contraire mon frère", just because the war over, being Jewish in Europe did not equate to an easy life. I had questions about God, faith, and prayers, to which none were ever answered. I watched my sister recover from a tragic fire that left her disfigured. Is this the true test of Faith? Didn't we already have enough on our plate? Then I started asking real questions; why would god let you win millions in the lottery, yet let millions go hungry? This memoir spans six decades of everything imaginable, love, tragedy, misery, family, good times and bad times. After reading my book, you will realize that anything we do in life will be equated to the odds of success or failure, and not necessarily fate, Faith, or prayers.

    Easy read, this book shows that life is for everyone, good and bad.

    Everyone has pitfalls in life, this is a good example that no one is immune from the unknown. A must read for all ages, religion, and a must if you think life is unfair to you.
