'Captivating ...There's a breadth of humanity in An Unsafe Haven which is very moving.

I loved the sense of Lebanon and of what is unique and precious about the Arab world' Helen Dunmore Nada Awar Jarrar paints an intimate portrait of modern-day Beirut where everyone has a story to tell... Journalist Hannah is deeply rooted in the city of her birth, reporting first-hand on growing unrest in the region.

Her American husband Peter is uncertain about their future in Lebanon and increasingly worried for his friend Anas, a Syrian artist estranged from his wife and children.

Maysoun, an immigrant from Iraq, works with refugees, secretly dreaming of a more tranquil life in the West. A chance encounter in a busy street with a young refugee and his mother draws the four characters into a startling chain of events that will both test and alter each of them irrevocably. An Unsafe Haven is a vital and beautiful novel about facing up to the future in a world where conflict and loss have become the fabric of everyday life.
