FREE DOWNLOAD ✓ Le Dernier Frère Nathacha Appanah ☆ 1 FREE DOWNLOAD In The Last Brother by Nathacha Appanah 1944 is coming to a close and nine year old Raj is unaware of the war devastating the rest of the world He lives in Mauritius a remote island in the Indian Ocean where survival is a daily struggle for his family When a brutal beating lands Raj in the hospital of the prison camp where his father is a guard he meets a myste. Raj is a man haunted by his memories As the story opens he is trapped voiceless in a dream Or is it a nightmare His friend from 60 years ago visits him in this dream as a man Raj reaches for him and tries to call out to him only to awaken with tears on his cheeks At the tender age of 9 Raj has already experienced enough trauma for a lifetime When he first sees David behind the barbed wire fence he instinctively knows this boy will become his friend Some people start out believing they are doing something for someone else only to someday realize that in truthit was them that something was done for This then is the story of two boys Raj and David The writing is so beautifully moving it went straight to my heart The memories and reflections Raj shares look back to a time when as a boy all felt both simple and profound He brings his father s lunch to him where he is employed as a prison guard This is no ordinary prison It is Beau Bisson a monstrous building where in 1945 Jews from Austria Czechoslovakia and Poland are imprisoned Having been turned away by British authorities in Palestine they are sent to the British colony of Mauritius Rather than directly returning home Raj hides out and observes the prisoners men women and children It is one boy who catches his eye They meet at the fence and something is stirred inside them as they wordlessly sit separated by the fence and shed tears Two boys so alone they form an unforgettable friendship They seem to fulfill the role of lost family members bringing each other a gift of understanding that transcends their mutual hardships For a time their relationship manages to overshadow all else Raj holds memories of their time together so vivid that even 60 years later a smell or colour plunges him into despair again Raj wanted to help David escape He imagined a hiding place so magical it would keep them safe from discovery and violent punishment The boys bring humanity healing and comfort to each other They are two wounded souls seeking sanctuary as they try to move past their traumas and broken hearts Nathacha Appanah writes like a soul poet Every page is spirit filled with wisdom Her words are tuned in to a pattern and rhythm that truly feels lit by a divine spark I highly recommend this but be sure to keep tissues close at hand

FREE DOWNLOAD ✓ Le Dernier Frère Nathacha Appanah ☆ 1 FREE DOWNLOAD Om Raj's cruel father the two young boys flee into the forest Danger hunger and malaria turn what at first seems like an adventure to Raj into an increasingly desperate missionThis unforgettable and deeply moving novel sheds light on a fascinating and unexplored corner of World War II history and establishes Nathacha Appanah as a significant international voice. I would have liked him to tell his story himself in his own words and with the things that he alone could see This novel was inspired by the story of 1584 Jews who fled Europe were refused entry to Palestine then under British rule and were subseuently imprisoned on Mauritius from December 1940 until the end of World War II in 1945 It recounts a heartfelt friendship between two boys David a one of the imprisoned Jews who is an orphan and Raj a Mauritian of Indian heritage who is grieving for his two brothers lost in a flash flood After his brothers are drowned Raj and his parents move to Beau Bissau where Raj s father becomes a guard at the prison where the detained Jews are held Raj spends much of his time peering through a fence in the prison and this is how he meets David The boys each recognise the other s grief and a period of hospitalisation in the prison infirmary draws them together Raj hospitalised as a conseuence of his father s beatings is unaware of the war and the plight of the Jews and David is suffering from malaria The boys communicate in French I m all alone Me too Raj does not want to be alone and he hopes to save David from prison for his sake as well as for David s Raj hopes as well that David can fill part of the gap in his mother s heart I thought I could banish a little of my mother s grief by bringing her another son I believed this kind of thing was possible if one truly loved Raj is recounting the story sixty years later as a 70 year old man and it becomes a eulogy to David to the 128 Jews who did not survive their imprisonment and to Raj s brothers Anil and Vinod Like me my mother carried the deaths of Anil and Vinod within her Raj says You can say you are an orphan or a widow or a widower but when you have lost two sons on the same day two beloved brothers on the same day what are you What word is there to say what you have become Such a word would have helped us As an adult Raj is looking back on events with a greater understanding but with no less pain There was no escape in the past from tragedy there is no escape in the present from the conseuences of it The greatest loss of all perhaps is the loss of childhoodJennifer Cameron Smith
