The Kindness of Enemies

by Leila Aboulela - £8.99  Orion Publishing Co. (2016)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781474600927 | ISBN 10: 1474600921

For fans of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and The Narrow Road to the Deep North, a sweeping new novel from the three times Orange Prize longlisted, Scottish Book Award and Caine Prize winner Leila Aboulela.
 
Natasha Wilson knows how difficult it is to fit in. Born to a Russian mother and a Muslim father, she feels adrift in Scotland and longs for a place which really feels like home.
 
Then she meets Oz, a charismatic and passionate student at the university where Natasha teaches. As their bond deepens, stories from Natasha's research come to life - tales of forbidden love and intrigue in the court of the Tsar.
 
But when Oz is suspected of radicalism, Natasha's own work and background suddenly come under the spotlight. As suspicions grow around her, and friends and colleagues back away, Natasha stands to lose the life she has fought to build.
