This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)
Three women of different ages separated by religion and culture find themselves in Canada where they help one another to overcome their haunted past. Samia, from Algeria; Mliss, from Cambodia; and Manuela, from Chile, all faced political turmoil in their homeland. Yet while each upheaval was different (an Islamic armed revolution, communist-led genocide, a right-wing coup), all three soon come to realize that the struggles they have undergone are similar.
