Summary: Within these verses, we meet a cast of characters, each a brushstroke in the vibrant canvas of life. From Fowzi, the domino maestro, to Ibtisam, aspiring to be a doctor, and Abu Mahmoud, the gardener with an intimate knowledge of eggplants and peaches. Nye's poetry dances through the lives of these individuals, offering glimpses of their dreams, resilience, and the enduring peace within. Whether it's a girl in a red sweater, Uncle Mohammed on the mountain, or the enigmatic Sitti Khadra, each poem weaves a tale that echoes with universal truths.

This is a very, very slow moving book about a little boy who does not want to move away from his beloved home in Oman to his new home in Michigan. I liked the writing, but my children and i all could not finish it as a bedtime book, because nothing was going to happen.

All about families and the love shared between them regardless of how far apart they live.

Beautiful story.
