You Will Not Have My Hate by Antoine Leiris

Like many others I watched the footage of the Paris attacks of November 13th 2015 in utter horror; around 130 people died that night as the French capital came under attack from terrorists, with many more injured both physically and emotionally. Antoine Leiris relates the deeply personal story of the death and loss of his beloved wife Helene at the Bataclan Theatre, a story echoed in the hearts of many families and friends following that dreadful night.

Like many others I watched the footage of the Paris attacks of November 13th 2015 in utter horror; around 130 people died that night as the French capital came under attack from terrorists, with many more injured both physically and emotionally. Antoine Leiris relates the deeply personal story of the death and loss of his beloved wife Helene at the Bataclan Theatre, a story echoed in the hearts of many families and friends following that dreadful night.
It is a short book, but oh boy does it pack an emotional punch. Antoine speaks from the heart; his love for his wife and hope for his now motherless son are heartbreakingly honest, and the open letter to the terrorists a battle cry of defiance and courage, declaring that his son will defy their act with the person that he will become despite their violence.
Easily a five star read, not just because of the emotive topic, but because it is written so well!
