They live a simple life, rich in family and friends, in the beautiful Syrian city of Aleppo - until the unthinkable happens.

When all they care for is destroyed by war, they are forced to escape. As Nuri and Afra travel through a broken world, they must confront not only the pain of their own unspeakable loss, but dangers that would overwhelm the bravest of souls.

Above all - and perhaps this is the hardest thing they face - they must journey to find each other again.

Told with deceptive simplicity, it is the kind of book that reminds us of the power of storytelling.
