(NAPSI)—Forget your weekly soccer games, car pools and homework. Instead, imagine you’re not yet 13 and you’ve already lived in three countries, shifting languages and cultures, even changing your name. Now you’re ready to step inside the pages of Life with an Accent to join Frank Levy on his gripping journey from Berlin in the 1930s to the Middle East and then to America in 1946. The story is a compelling tale of what it is like to leave one world behind and begin again.

“The book is an emotional dip into the 20th century,” says Linda Goldstein of The Jewish Museum of New York. “It’s a must-read for all those exploring their own roots.”

The story follows Levy into adulthood as he tries to make sense of his life. Every effort evokes former times and forges friendships between those who were once enemies. When outside events impact his career, he must reinvent himself yet again. This time, Levy wins an international award for the United States for sustainable technology that recycles carpets and helps clear landfills.

By dipping into the soul of one man determined to make it in America, author Marilyn Gottlieb reminds readers polarized by immigration problems that our nation has been built upon the success of many refugees.

“Issues arising from having to adapt to changing circumstances bear great relevance in today’s globalized world. Life with an Accent contributes to this important discussion. It is a tale of optimism and inspirational to us all,” says Carsten Ruepke, Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany, Washington, D.C.

“It’s a great read I immediately wanted to share with my mother and my daughter,” says Odette Heideman, editor of Epiphany.

Life with an Accent: One Immigrant’s Quest to Belong is available at www.amazon.com. Published by The Crescendo Group, it can be purchased via Ingram by bookstores, libraries and schools. To learn more, contact mgottlieb@crescendogroup.com or call (631) 288-4596.
