Engaging from the first chapter, Khan's novel provides a startling introduction to the Syrian refugee crisis, with characters, dialogue, and tragedies that come alive in audio. Using nuanced intonations and a slow and steady style of narration, narrator Peter Ganim's presentation is impeccable. Whether reading a scene in an inhuman refugee camp or presenting conversations among officials searching for a lost emigré, Ganim never falters. Books such as this can be a challenge for a narrator because of the intertwining of the political and the personal. Ganim overcomes this obstacle and allows Khan's words to convince listeners of the injustice of the crisis through real characters facing real tragedies. D.J.S.
