Enchanting, heartbreaking, and important

This beautiful written debut novel combines folklore and the balm of story-telling with a powerful and heartbreaking refugee story. We see the family’s journey through the eyes of the children, Fairuzeh and her younger brother Nour, as they escape Afghanistan for a new life of safety in mythical Australia. Fans of Exit West by Mohsin Hamid or The Book of Lost Saints by Daniel Jose Older take note.
