A Land Of Permanent Goodbyes, Paperback / softback Book

A Land Of Permanent Goodbyes Paperback / softback


In a country ripped apart by war, Tareq lives with his big and loving family - until the bombs strike.

His city is in ruins. His life is destroyed. And those who have survived are left to figure out their uncertain future.

Tareq's family knows that to continue to stay alive, they must leave.

As they travel as refugees from Syria to Turkey to Greece, facing danger at every turn, Tareq must find the resilience and courage to complete his harrowing journey. While this is one family's story, it is also the timeless tale of the heartbreaking consequences of all wars, all tragedy, narrated by Destiny itself.

When you are a refugee, success is outliving your loss. An award-winning author and journalist - and a refugee herself - Atia Abawi captures the hope that spurs people forward against all odds and the love that makes that hope grow.
