Beautifully written and bittersweet, a true human story not isolated to the experiences of war and immigration. This book made me think and feel in new ways.
Nadia and Saeed meet and fall in love in a country moving closer to a civil war. As violence and threats escalate, they leave their homeland, find a door and step forward.
This is a novel and so is allowed to be dreamy, dazzling, romantic and poetical. But use caution when thinking this is a story that is an accurate reflection of the very real horrors and challenges that refugees experience.
I really appreciate this story and perspective on the current refugee crisis. It really opened my eyes to the struggles all refugees face and how their struggles affect their families and relationships. AL_MARIEI
