A "quiet" book in many ways. I kept expecting it to "go somewhere," but it was primarily about the aftermath in the life of an extended family after the death in a terrorist attack of the father of two teen-age children, their aunt and the children's long-distant mother who wants back into their lives. I'm looking forward to reading other books by Farah.

I loved this book. I do not know anything about Somalia, or any of the countries in Africa that are undergoing upheaval. So, from the safety of my armchair I am trying to learn and feel. I found out a lot about myself by reading this.
