From the Lives We Knew

By Phil Miller

Action & adventure | Paperback, eBook

Characters from Palestine, Kosovo, and Iraq narrate their refugee tales showing the hardships and hardiness of displaced people. Khalil Khouri leaves the West Bank when it is part of Jordan to look for work in Amman. It is 1967, the year of the Six-Day War when Israel bombs the bridge he must cross to get home. A grandmother sustains long-term injuries while risking her life to shield her family from invaders. She flees with her children to Macedonia and later to Texas. Sajida Ashkouri, an Iraqi Army medical technologist, scrambles alone across the vast desert of Anbar when ISIS-type assailants try to kidnap her. The lives of these characters intersect through their friendship with Americans Kay and Ed Kirby. This book about human resilience and friendship highlights what refugees and those trying to help have to face.

Phil Miller has had a lifelong interest in international affairs that began with ideas of becoming a missionary. He is a former pastor and Air Force chaplain and writes at home, a log cabin in a mountain forest.
