Paperback, Hardcover, Kindle & Audiobook

When I was 10 years old, I watched my mother give a speech in my home town of Herat, Afghanistan, speaking out for women's rights and education and against the ruling Taliban. That night, an order was given for her execution. My family packed up our most precious belongings and escaped in darkness, starting what would be a long and dangerous journey. But my mother's was not the only life in danger. My older brother suffered from a rare heart condition, and this escape offered a chance of life-saving treatment in the West. Exploring the humanity of refugeeism, this is not only a tale of a family in crisis, but a love letter to the NHS, which provided hope and reassurance as we sought asylum in the UK and fought to save our loved ones. This book was the BBC Radio 4 Book of the Week, read bySanjeev Bhaskar and is available to purchase from Amazon and other retailers in Hardback, Paperback, Audiobook and Kindle editions.
