Summary

A young Eritrean refugee finding it hard to adjust to her precarious new life in the UK finds comfort in a diary she finds hidden in an old hat box written by a girl the same age as her over 100 years ago.

When Samira discovers a diary written by Hen, a girl living over 100 years ago, she finds the friend she has been desperately seeking.

A friend who brings not just comfort, but inspiration to be brave, to fight for her place in the world, and maybe even to uncover the secrets of her own past.

NOTE : Brief reference made to domestic violence but nothing explicit or detailed.

Book of the week

Two worlds come together in a gripping & magnificent story of friendship, courage & freedom. Powerfully written with plenty of mystery & secrets. A very compelling read.
