Publisher's summary

"A terrific debut, and so very timely. With smart writing and compassion, Klepper offers us a look into the hearts of two women: a Syrian immigrant hoping to find a home in the USA, and the volunteer lawyer whose work brings a second chance at life not only to her client, but to herself as well." (Julie Lawson Timmer, author of Mrs. Saint and the Defectives)

Jessica Donnelly's life is beginning to unravel. When the attorney turned stay-at-home mom tentatively volunteers to represent Amina Hamid, a woman seeking asylum, Jessica must learn an unfamiliar area of the law. Soon, rising opposition to Muslim immigration and unexpected prejudices put her relationships on shaky ground. 

Amina fled Syria with little more than memories that now fight against the images splashed on the news. Seeking a secure future and freedom from guilt and grief, she must learn to trust others amidst the reality of fear and hate. 

To find stability, Jessica and Amina will both need to harness their own strengths, which may lie in connections that transcend generations, cultures, and continents.

Very moving and realistic! Powerful book! Must read!

To say this is a great book doesn’t even begin to cover it! Absolutely superb narration as well! These 2 make a wonderful team! Both of these women lead completely opposite lives and have completely different backgrounds. They know nothing about each other, but throughout the book they get to know each other on a very meaningful level. Despite initially having biases about one another, they both learned from each other. What they learned from one another completely changed them and made them better people. The author did a fantastic job making the characters very personable, and the narrator brought them to life. The way the author described them made it feel like they were people I had come to know, and the narrator was spot on with her ability to depict the characters differently. I felt such a wide range of emotions...sadness, happiness, fear, frustration, suspense, relief...this audiobook has it all! So much of it was new to me...some of the legalities, and especially information about Syria. Definitely a thriller, but it goes beyond just storytelling. The author wrote a beautiful and thrilling book with believable characters, and the narrator made it real! I received a free review copy, and my review is voluntary and honest. Don’t just read it...let Ms. Beacom tell you the story so you can feel like you’re right there with the characters and living through the experiences with them! I highly recommend it. The author and narrator have also partnered together for other audiobooks, but I haven’t listened to them yet. I’m definitely a big fan now and will be starting another audiobook by this duo next.
