 ‘A poignant and beautifully written story with a surprising conclusion. Buy it. You will only be disappointed if you have a heart of stone.’ Thomas D. Amazon.co.uk


Set against the turmoil of twentieth century Iraq, Haneen tells the story of Kamaran, his cousin Leyla, and the city they love – Baghdad. Inseparable as children, the cousins are parted when bitter rivalry between their fathers ends in tragedy.

Years later, in exile from the regime, Kamaran hears news of Leyla and returns home to find her, unaware that his country is about to be plunged into an unwinnable war with the West.
