What the Day Owes the Night

by Yasmina Khadra
£8.99   paperback  Vintage (2011)

What the Day Owes the Night by Yasmina Khadra A romance and a tale of friendship and identity, set in the harsh yet mystic landscape of Algeria.
 
'Darling, this is Younes. Yesterday he was my nephew, today he is our son'
 
Younes' life is changed forever when his poverty-stricken parents surrender him to the care of his more affluent uncle. Renamed Jonas, he grows up in a colourful colonial Algerian town, and forges a unique friendship with a group of boys, an enduring bond that nothing not even the Algerian Revolt will shake. He meets Emilie a beautiful, beguiling girl who captures the hearts of all who see her and an epic love story is set in motion.
 
Time and again Jonas is forced to to choose between two worlds: Algerian or European; past or present; love or loyalty, and finally decide if he will surrender to fate or take control of his own destiny at last.
