Extra copies are available at the front desk to check out. Please join us –new members are always welcome.

“Deeply affecting… Fleming brings a moral urgency to the narrative.” ― The New Yorker “Fleming deftly illustrates the pain of those who choose to leave Syria…and her book is ultimately a story of hope.” ―Newsweek Adrift in a frigid sea, no land in sight, just debris from the ship’s wreckage and floating corpses all around, nineteen-year-old Doaa Al Zamel stays afloat on a small inflatable ring and clutches two little girls―barely toddlers―to her body. The children had been thrust into Doaa’s arms by their drowning relatives, all refugees who boarded a dangerously overcrowded ship bound for Italy and a new life. For days as Doaa drifts, she prays for rescue and sings to the babies in her arms. She must stay alive for them. She must not lose hope. –Amazon
