This week I read the Other Hand (titled Little Bee in the US and Canada), and it was amazing.
It was the back cover that really captured my attention.
The story begins with Little Bee, an asylum seeker, being released from a camp in the English countryside, with nothing but a card and the driver's licence of a man she met two years beforehand, on a beach in Nigeria.
At the end of Chapter Two I was so overcome (and blubbering), I had to put it away for the evening.
If you are looking for something new to read, I thoroughly recommend this book.
