From Sydney to Seattle

We're doubly grateful to Elizabeth C. Fowler, who's sponsoring for the second time this week. Fowler is a local writer, now, but she grew up in Australia as a Hungarian refugee. Her experience reflects the challenges of historic discrimination and is, as she says, "a most relevant topic today." How she got from there to here — and grew from a lonely young girl into a talented physician with a passionate love for music and nature — is a story worth reading. Reviewers have called Lonely Refugee an "impressive debut" that "strikes a universal chord." Try a sample on our sponsor feature page, provided just for Seattle Review of Books readers.
