Description
Zahra, age three, and Hawra, only a few months old, were the only survivors of a missile strike in Baghdad in 2003 that killed their parents and five siblings. In London, foreign correspondent Hala Jaber had given up on her dream of having children and was preparing to head to Iraq to cover the emerging war. Once in Iraq, however, Jaber found herself drawn to stories of mothers and children, which led her to Zahra and Hawra. She instantly became entwined in the lives of these girls, and in a struggle to advocate on their behalf. Twice named Foreign Reporter of the Year at the British Press Awards, a winner of the Martha Gellhorn Prize for Journalism, and honored by Amnesty International, Jaber explores the emotional experiences of women and children whose lives are irrevocably changed by war.

"Powerful. Unforgettable. Hala Jaber paints heart-breaking portraits of children and families who have lost a great deal, some everything, during the Iraq war. She takes us into the lives of fearless, selfless journalists, volunteer workers, and doctors, who try at great risk to themselves to help these devastated people. Jaber's own quest to adopt two orphan children weaves through the narrative with moving detail, providing an extra, personal dimension. She brings us close to deep desires, tragedies, as well as fulfillment."óNahid Rachlin
