A clear-eyed, prescient depiction of a possible future that seems all too real today. Vourvoulias writes with complexity and compassion as her characters struggle with injustice, and as they carve out small triumphs amid tragedy and pain. A deeply grounded sense of magic permeates this story, as well as the gift and burden of memory for what has been left behind and might still be rescued or acknowledged.
