Nana’s Shoes is a book that must be read. Aisa Softic, a Bosnian Muslim refugee, has written an odyssey, a story that takes its readers through a range of challenges that pit the human spirit against the odds and provides lessons in courage for us all. When Yugoslavia (which included Bosnia) broke up and descended into violence and the ethnic cleansing of Muslims, she held tight to her family at the risk of her own life. The story of Aisa and her family is a Bosnian and a Muslim story, but it is above all else a human story. Born in 1950 to a hard-working farm family that owned its own land but wrested only subsistence from it, Aisa was destined to half an education and a life of hard work, little financial gain, and the obscurity of the poor. But God decreed otherwise, and gave to Aisa gifts that cannot be purchased with money: the gifts of faith, an abundance of family love, intelligence, courage, and an indomitable spirit. Nana’s Shoes is about a brave woman and her family. At the same time it is a story of how the human spirit rises up and speaks courage to violence. This is book that must be read, add this piece of history to your cart.
