The Orchard of Lost Souls by Nadifa Mohamed

The Orchard of Lost SoulsReceived a free copy from Foyles

I was lucky enough to win a copy of this in a Giveaway run by Foyles and boy am I glad that I did because otherwise I would have missed experiencing this eye-opening novel.

The novel follows the lives of 3 different women whose lives crossover during a time of civil war in Somalia. Whilst the lives of all 3 women are infused with different types of tragedy and they are surrounded by carnage, the author does a good job of describing it all matter-of-factly whilst at the same time making you feel like you are there experiencing what the characters are going through.
