Product description

Product Description

A unique and unflinching portrayal of two of the human faces of the refugee crisis, "Where the Waves Break Upon the Shore" is the unforgettable tale of an old man and his granddaughter, who set out from the coast of Libya in a small sailing dingy in search of safety and a new life in Europe.

Having escaped from the horrors of the Syrian war, the barren wastes of the Eastern Sahara and the clutches of the human traffickers, at the midway point of their crossing, they find themselves trapped in the midst of a terrible storm. Far from aid, desperately short of food and water, and suffering from the effects of an horrific leg-wound, the old man is forced to pit the remnants of his strength against the fury of the sea, for the sake of the life and future of the child in his care.

In this beautifully crafted debut novel, T.M Cicinski presents us with a timeless depiction of courage and the endurance of hope in the face of almost unimaginable hardship; of love and dignity, self-sacrifice and loss, in a tale immense drama, based on real events in the treacherous waters of the Mediterranean.
