Product description


"This is a beautiful book, written in vivid, tender prose....Salma is an unforgettable character, fierce and loving, veering between self-hatred and a sense of her own strength, touching and funny. Now I have finished the book, I miss her."

"Fadia Faqir's first novel, Nisanit, was decades ahead of its time. Her captivating new novel deals with the timeless themes of unforgiveness, friendship, and travel. Exquisitely woven, laced with humor and social awareness, it hums with the futility of erasing the past."


Left pregnant after an illicit love affair, Saalma, a young Bedouin woman from Hima in the Levant, flees her people to escape the honor killing waiting for her at the hands of her tribe and seeks asylum in England.
