Fiction • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Narrator Sam Dastor becomes the stern patriarch at the center of this drama about a Somali family living in Norway. His grim tenor sets the tone for Gacalo and Mugdi's dilemma when their son is radicalized and dies as a suicide bomber in their homeland. Should they take in his widow and children though they disowned their son? Dastor gives voice to the pain, loss, and politics that circle around their decision to help Walia by bringing her and their grandchildren to Oslo. Listeners will hang on every word as they are drawn deeper into this story of immigration, isolation, and extremism. Dastor highlights the personal side of a story based on world events.
