Waterstones Says

With superb illustrations, Sea Prayer sings with tenderness: a hymn to a destroyed country and a broken life. All author proceeds go to the UN Refugee Agency and the Khaled Hosseini Foundation.

A heart-wrenching story from the international bestselling author of The Kite Runner, brought to life by Dan Williams's beautiful illustrations.

On a moonlit beach a father cradles his sleeping son as they wait for dawn to break and a boat to arrive. He speaks to his boy of the long summers of his childhood, recalling his grandfather's house in Syria, the stirring of olive trees in the breeze, the bleating of his grandmother's goat, the clanking of her cooking pots. And he remembers, too, the bustling city of Homs with its crowded lanes, its mosque and grand souk, in the days before the sky spat bombs and they had to flee.

When the sun rises they and those around them will gather their possessions and embark on a perilous sea journey in search of a new home.

Khaled Hosseini will donate author proceeds from this book to the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) and the Khaled Hosseini Foundation to help fund life-saving relief efforts to help refugees around the globe.

“Don’t judge others until you’ve walked in their shoes.”

Sea Prayer was born out of a photo of a little boy clutched in his father’s arms on a beach in Greece - one that rocked the world. He’d drowned when the boat supposedly bringing them to safety, sank. They were... More
