Editorial Reviews

Review

“Jo Tatchell’s moving narrative, from Nabeel’s mouth, tells of endurance, literary resistance and the courage of a loving, close-knit family oppressed by tyranny and war. Behind the deadly statistics and political rhetoric, voices such as his inspire us to pity and pride.”-- The Times (London)


“Such an extraordinary story deserves an extraordinary writer and thankfully it has Jo Tatchell. She puts you perfectly in the place, and her page-turner narrative would shame most thriller writers. A staggering, unmissable achievement.”
–Daily Mail

“A moving personal tale of family life and love torn apart by persecution and destruction under a crude regime. The story shines through, engrossing in its horror, doubly powerful for the knowledge that a happy ending is still far away.”  -- Financial Times


From the Trade Paperback edition.
