I have read many Conrad Jones books…for me this is his masterpiece… A stunning story…
This is Conrad Jones at his best… An outstanding well written story…
An emotional rollercoaster. Unputdownable
This is nothing like anything Conrad has written before. However it’s equally as excellent, if not better, as all his other books.
What an amazing story, my heart was in my mouth all the way through, the literary world is all the richer because of you Mr Jones I salute you sir
Sad, moving, emotional, at times uplifting….a horrible reflection of the cruelty of this world. But a story that needed to be told and must be read. Highly recommended
The gripping story of a young boy and his family, driven from their home by war and indiscriminate violence. Like millions of others, they attempt the treacherous journey across their war-torn continent, trying to reach the safety of Europe.
The truth is, Europe doesn’t want them and thousands die every month at the hands of thieves and profiteering men to whom life is cheap. Kalu believes that he can lead his family to safety, he has planned for this. They have money, a plan and Kalu is, after all, the smartest man in Monguno.
The story is fast-paced, at times funny, at times heart-breaking but it will pull you along at 100 miles an hour. It will make you think, it will make you question your perceptions. Most of all it will make you ask, if your family was in peril, what would you do?
