'Devastatingly beautiful....every sentence a revelation.' Nikita Gill
Set in Uganda in 1972, an extraordinarily moving debut that tells the story of one family's escape, when Amin forces them to leave: a story of loss and separation, but also ultimately of hope.
A devastating decree is issued: all Ugandan Asians must leave the country in ninety days. They must take only what they can carry, give up their money and never return.
For Asha and Pran, married a matter of months, it means abandoning the family business that Pran has worked so hard to save. For his mother, Jaya, it means saying goodbye to the house that has been her home for decades. But violence is escalating in Kampala, and people are disappearing. Will they all make it to safety in Britain and will they be given refuge if they do? And all the while, a terrible secret about the expulsion hangs over them, threatening to tear the family apart.
