Narrator Lameece Issaq brings a lot of personality to the first-person story of Mina, a Lebanese doctor who travels to Greece to work at a refugee camp. Each chapter is its own vignette, weaving the various subplots together to get a full perspective of who this doctor is to her estranged family, medical colleagues, patients, and community. Employing boldness, wit, and passion to portray Mina, Issaq moves through each chapter with clarity. She also delivers the voices of Mina's patients, her brother, and her equally bold, impressive friend, Emma. Interlaced throughout the novel is the ongoing conversation Mina has with an unnamed author who has tried writing about the refugee experience. Issaq's gutsy tone in these particular chapters adds to the richness of the story. T.E.C. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2022]
