About The Book:

As the reign of imperialism ends in Aden, Yemen and gives way to a communist government, a young family finds themselves trapped as political prisoners. Strength, love and faith are pushed to their limits overnight as they embark on the fight of their lives.

November 1967 in Aden, Yemen. Dara and Silloo Barucha’s serene life with their family is interrupted when violence erupts after the British occupation announce their plan for a swift exit from the country. Things take a turn when the family business is seized, and they are targeted by members of the revolution. Dara is whisked away as a political prisoner while Silloo put under house arrest with her three young children and mother-in-law. As the couple embark on their separate harrowing journeys, in the hopes of being reunited, they are consistently faced by challenges. The looming question: will they make it out alive?
