5.0 out of 5 stars A Gripping Lullaby, an Ode to the Oppressed
By Jonathan Hackett on February 28, 2021
We heard that some survived but we don't know how many didn't. We saw the headlines and forgot them. We noticed the desperate stories of innocents trapped on mountaintops and we scrolled to the next story. Now it's time for us to listen, time to pay attention.

As an American Marine who was there in Iraq, I implore you to read this book. I was lucky to receive an advanced copy of Mojgan Azar's A Lullaby in the Desert from the Arkbound Foundation, and I wish I could give it to you right now to read with me.

Mojgan carefully weaves a tapestry of so many tragic truths in her novel about Susan's fight to overcome being a woman in the Middle East, being an Iranian in Iraq, and being a human in the shadow of ISIS. Her journey takes us to places that many of us in the West have never heard of, real places full of love, life, and loss.

As my eyes move across the pages, I am viscerally transported back to those places where I witnessed the rise of ISIS firsthand, and its fall. I am also reminded of the smiling faces and the tears, the laughter and the loss, all haunting every vacant street in Mosul and every empty plain in the Syrian Desert. Mojgan's story is truer than any news story, deeper than any song, direr than any political issue. It's simply a story that must be read to grasp and must be shared to help.

"She began to realise that any moment on this journey could be her final one alive. Would she know which breath would be her last?"
