My Book


In her newest novel, Salome tells the story of Fanaye, a young girl from Ethiopia who goes on a magnificent journey of finding herself, while learning how to stand on her own two feet.



In her new novel, "Fanaye: Standing Strong," Salome Kassa brings her characters vividly to life! It is rare that a novel can so faithfully hold one's interest until it ends, but Salome's does. The author's conversational style provides movement to the narrative, and is loyal to the oral tradition she is so clearly familiar with. Ethiopian by birth and background, Salome warmly presents Ethiopian culture and values such as respecting one's parents and descriptions of traditions. -Genevive Stroh, CCC-A, TSHH, BE New York State Certified Audiologist and Teacher of Speech and Hearing Handicapped
