What a joyless novel--nothing but dread from beginning to end. If the purpose of novels is to show the reader other ways of life, this is a diatribe against Islam.

I loved this book (fiction). The personal hardships suffered by this family(Kurdish) is similar to the book 'I shall Not Hate' by Abuelaish Izzeldin' a Palestinian . Always about politics v religion. What brings more sadness in these families? I hope we see more books written by Alan Drew

A family struggles in the aftermath of an earthquake which exposes them to religious clashes between Christianity and Islamic faiths. Tragic and dark at times. Not an uplifting read but well worth the time.
