Description


NATIONAL BOOK AWARD FINALIST

Haris Abadi, a wayward Arab American with a conflicted past, has finally found his purpose: he will cross into Syria and join the fight against Bashar al-Assad's oppressive regime. But before he can get there, he is robbed and abandoned on the Turkish side of the border. Fortunately for Haris, he is picked up by Amir, a charismatic revolutionary turned refugee. Amir's wife, Daphne, is a beautiful, grief-stricken woman who shares Haris's longing to make it into Syria--but for altogether different reasons. As he grows closer to the couple who rescued him, Haris must confront his own motivations and ask himself what kind of man--radical or idealist, hero or coward--he truly is.
