Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

A forbidden love story set against the backdrop of a war plagued Afghanistan, Refuge explores questions of woman’s rights and Islamic fundamentalism with convincing intrigue … Charlie’s character may be a little too good to be true, but that’s a small quibble in an otherwise accomplished manuscript. With mention of Al Qaeda toward the end of the book, it’s hard not to guess the historical backdrop for the sequel.


Debut British novelist N.G. Osborne has crafted a brilliantly compelling romantic drama set in a world where love is a lethal indulgence and women are best neither seen nor heard beneath their burkhas … a simple but deeply affecting tale of forbidden love with tenderly realized characters. Come the riveting climax you will have fallen hard for Noor and Charlie, and the many colourful supporting characters, and be hoping against hope for a happy ending.

Discovery of the year.

Henry Fitzherbert - Daily Express

"A captivating tale of love between the unlikeliest people in the unlikeliest of places." Will Fetters - Screenwriter of "Remember Me" and "The Lucky One"
