While the Sun is Above Us takes us deep into the extraordinary world of South Sudan through the eyes of two women: Adut, a Dinka woman and Sandra, a Canadian aid worker. In the midst of a bloody civil war, chance brings Adut and Sandra unexpectedly together in a brief but profound moment that irrevocably changes both their lives. Here is a novel that gives us astonishing imaginative insight into the lives of innocents in a land at war, rendering unthinkable experiences-to have one's village attacked, to be held captive, to lose one's husband, to lose one's children-with horrific clarity. Here is a novel that asks how strangers imagine each other, and what impact such imaginings may have. And finally, here is a novel that allows us hope-hope for a better future, for Adut, for Sandra, and for a new nation.
