A wonderful insight into the tragedy and displacement of peoples fleeing wars and the dangers they encounter in their journey toward hope . Beautifully narrated I really felt that I knew Noori and Afra and Mustafa , and could just as easily visualise all the other characters and people they encountered along the journey . Many with their own tragic stories , others who would prey on the vulnerability of the refugees . Christy’s further insight at the end of the story and her reasons for writing the book were wonderful. I volunteer teaching English to refugee women from Syria, Afghanistan and parts of Africa and similarly hear stories from time to time of their experiences, but the storytelling here is so powerful I congratulate Christy on being able to direct her experiences into such a fine novel and to also allow it to be shared by such a great narration .
