Item description for The Firetrees by LB Atinsky Luz Loy...
Aptly titled the Firetrees, this novel by Luz Loy LB Atinsky, written in English not her lingua franca, brings to the forefront of world literature the true mind, character, and identity of a Filipino. Of great magnitude and profound depth equal to the best there is in the literary world, it will always serve as a fresh eye-opener, the springboard for global Philippines to aspire to the highest level their talent can bring them. This book of semi-history blended with unrivaled and unraveled mysticism, plotted against the back-drop of a nation on the verge and period of dual col-onization, the passionate romance of royalty and the compelling aspirations of a commoner, the unleash-ing forces of nature - drought in an island of plenty and volcanic eruption in a land of self exile that both enslave man - challenge the human spirit to cling on for survival and sing the paeans of worship to his Bathala, the destiny of the righteous, the unbridled laughter of innocence, the greed for wealth and dis-regard of human dignity, the rebel with a cause and the returning odyssey of the claimant-heir.
