We also get to follow Ellen, the British news reporter, trying to make sense of what is going on in the refugee camp. There's a romantic story for her and for Layla but also some incredibly tense events where I couldn't stop reading - however late it was getting!
I thoroughly recommend this book. Jill McGivering clearly knows her stuff and she writes really well. Enjoy!
