A valiant, beautifully rendered attempt to do justice, its heart unbowed by the enormity of its burden (Boston Globe)

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
An absorbing book of people caught up in history, how they shape it, and how it changes them. Some get to where they want to go, some die before they get there, and most find the new world different to what they were expecting.
