- “From a safe distance, the violence of the Syrian civil war is too vast and grotesque to grasp. How does one comprehend the deaths of 500,000 people, after all? Homes grants readers an intimate view of the war through the eyes of a ten-year-old boy as he struggles to play, pray, and survive as his world collapses around him. Homes stands as one of those rare books that manages to find humanity in the inhumane and, in the end, says more about love than war.” - Marcello di Cintio, author of Walls: Travels Along the Barricade
- “This charming and warm-hearted book is a refugee story like no other. A captivating read.” - Deborah Campbell, author of A Disappearance in Damascus
