Presenting this moving account of how immigration restrictions keep romantic partners apart, the author performs with gentle phrasing and clarity that make every sentence and narrative thread easy to absorb. The audio focuses on the author, a U.S. citizen with Middle East heritage who fell in love with a Syrian refugee and faced constant threats to their being together as they sought a country that would accept them both. But she also tells the stories of other migrant and refugee couples who are prevented from being together because of capricious border laws rooted in ethnic stereotypes, colonialism, and ethnic exploitation. Her personal journey and her accounts of past and present immigration injustices are served well by her cogent writing and vocal authenticity.
