When the moon is low by Nadia Hashimi
A novel set in current day Afghanistan and the plight of immigrants.
When Fereiba's husband is murdered by the Taliban she flees with her 3 children, hopeful of crossing Europe and reaching England; where family now lives. Using forged papers and relying on strangers, trustworthy and not, they reach Greece. Saleem her son becomes separated from his mother and must adjust to surviving as an illegal immigrant in Greece. As Fereiba tells her story as a woman and immigrant so does Saleem as a child immigrant.
A powerful yet hopeful novel of immigration and love.
