A story of Syrian refugees trying to flee to the safety of England. Throughout the story, we see how the trauma of living in Syria during the bombings and the long trek to asylum has affected the main character, Nuri, but also how witnessing the death of their child Sami physically alters his wife, Afra. The storytelling is well done and the author put much heart and emotion into telling the story of this couple looking for freedom.
