Pidge and Jamie grew up in the peaceful last days of the Victorian Age. Each thought their ordered lives would follow a predictable future. But with the onset of World War I their lives were... More > drastically changed. Intensely patriotic, both were determined to join the war effort. Pidge went first, to the war zone of north-eastern France. Living eight miles behind the firing line, through a bitter winter, she experienced conditions of heartbreak and destruction she never could have imagined. Interwoven with her relief work is the story of her involvement in the capture of two German spies. Shortly after Pidge’s return, Jamie was sent to the same war-torn north-eastern part of France, where some of the heaviest fighting was taking place. He too, was overwhelmed by the total destruction the Germans had left behind. Home again Jamie and Pidge picked up their lives together and put into practice much of what the war had taught them, principally the value of devoting one’s life to the public service of others.< Less

This memoir recounts the life of Enayat Sultani, born in Kabul, Afghanistan. Sultani recalls his boyhood home, encounters with the Taliban, and the events that led him to escape. “I was... More > exhausted and covered in mud mixed with blood. I couldn’t go home like that. I was in a bad state. Instead of running home for my life, I ran toward the mountains, a place no one could see me except the rocks and the spring water. There was a big wave of water coming down from the mountains, and I followed the water until I reached the spring. I lay in the spring and washed my face with my clothes. The water cooled the bruises, and I rested my body in the cave, looking at the blue sky and drying myself.” Filled with the insights and observations of daily life in a war-torn land, When Water Escapes from the Mountains promises to put a human face on events that occupy the world’s attention while remaining mostly obscured, like distant mountains only partially glimpsed when clouds part and hazy air still intervenes.< Less
