Summary
  • A searing novel about a young immigrant woman's dream of freedom in Rome and the legacies of her African past
  • Adua, an immigrant from Somalia to Italy, has lived in Rome for nearly forty years. She came seeking freedom from a strict father and an oppressive regime. She has a husband, also an immigrant, who braved a dangerous crossing of the Mediterranean Sea. When her father, who worked as an interpreter for Mussolini's fascist regime, dies, Adua inherits the family home. She must decide whether to make the journey back to reclaim her inheritance, or take charge of her own story and build a future
