The refugee camp is crowded with sick and starving people. Two new arrivals, a teenage girl, Mehrit, carrying her little brother on her back, wait their turn patiently. What will happen to them? Will they ever find their parents again? A strong story of a family in a famine–stricken African country.
A beautiful story, for 11–16 years approximately, that tugs at the heart strings from the start. Emma is a young nurse who has just arrived from England to work in a refugee camp in a war torn African country. Mehrit and her brother Tekla arrive in the camp after their family had been ripped apart when their parents were seized and taken to a resettlement camp while trying to buy food. Emma’s work at the camp is intertwined with Mehrit and Tekla’s story as she cares for them. Their father Testai escaped and travelled to find them. His faith in God is rekindled on the journey. He is invited to church and introduced to Jesus. Testai finds peace with God and can live in hope when he is reunited with Mehrit and Tekla inspite of the continuing difficulties in their lives. As an adult I thoroughly enjoyed the book and was challenged by it.
