An Unsafe Haven

paperback    ISBN 13: 9780008165048 | ISBN 10: 0008165041

Nada Awar Jarrar paints an intimate portrait of modern-day Beirut where everyone has a story to tell...
 
Journalist Hannah is deeply rooted in the city of her birth, reporting first-hand on growing unrest in the region. Her American husband Peter is uncertain about their future in Lebanon and increasingly worried for his friend Anas, a Syrian artist estranged from his wife and children. Maysoun, an immigrant from Iraq, works with refugees, secretly dreaming of a more tranquil life in the West.
 
A chance encounter in a busy street with a young refugee and his mother draws the four characters into a startling chain of events that will both test and alter each of them irrevocably.
 
An Unsafe Haven is a vital and beautiful novel about facing up to the future in a world where conflict and loss have become the fabric of everyday life.
