'This is an incredible read, it is a family drama set in Beirut amidst the conflict in 2006 in Lebanon. There's a budding romance,but it's also about the effect of war on the innocent civilians caught in the middle of an ongoing conflict that seems never ending. A beautifully written tale of family, love, compassion and anger. Heartbreaking and heartwarming and I loved every minute.' The Bookwormery; 'This is a heartwarming story about the bond of family and stopping at nothing to protect them. This was a fast paced read that had all the things you love in a book. A smidgen of romance, jam packed with drama and shows the true effect of war on the people.' The bookishgurlblog
