Inhaltsangabe: A journey of faith, connections and synchronicity to find classmates from 1964 at Nazareth School in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. It all began with a dream in April 2000...
Über den Autor: Annette Allen is half-English, half-Norwegian and spent much of her childhood living out of suitcases, as the family travelled from place to place, following her father's aeronautical career. Most of her childhood was spent in Africa: Ethiopia and South Africa. When she witnessed the endemic poverty in these countries, she developed a strong sense of justice for these people, who had so little, and yet were often happier than we were, with all our material possessions. Her simple, Christian faith grew from such encounters. After returning to Britain in the early 1970's, she moved into corporate communications, working for major international companies. She won awards for some of her work, but far preferred hearing and telling people's personal stories. As she approached 40, life began to seem increasingly meaningless. Everything changed in 1992, when she stopped work to care for her terminally ill mother. Planning ahead was futile: every day was precious. Annette began to question what life was really all about. In particular, she was puzzled by the still, clear dreams she had had since she was a teenager: messages which had no connection whatsoever to the previous day's events. She began to wonder if these, perhaps, foretold her future. Her first book. "An Ethiopian Odyssey", is about her quest to find nine classmates from her schooldays in Addis Ababa in1964, prompted by another dream in April 2000: she'd returned there to help provide water. Helped by kind men and women around the world, she found most of them. The dream spread everywhere, through the internet, newspapers, radio programmes and ends in February 2005, at St. Paul's Chapel in New York, the little church of such peace beside Ground Zero, New York, the city where two of her classmates now live.
