Book Description

 ** BBC radio 4 book of the week 29 June - 3 July 2020 read by Sanjeev Bhaskar (goodness gracious me, the kumars at no. 42 and more) ** 'enthralling... A fascinating insight' Daily Mail 'an inspiring read' Nihal arthanayake, BBC radio 5 live a powerful tale of a family in crisis, and a moving love letter to the NHS. Herat, Afghanistan, 2000. A mother speaks out against the fundamentalist leaders of her country. Meanwhile, her family's watchful eyes never leave their beloved son and brother, whose rare heart condition means that he will never lead a normal life. When the Talisman gave an order for the execution of hamed amiri's mother, the family knew they had to escape, starting what would be a long and dangerous journey, across Russia and through Europe, with the UK as their ultimate destination. Travelling as refugees for a year and a half, they suffered attacks from mafia and police; terrifying journeys in strangers' Cars; treks across demanding terrain; days spent hidden in lorries without food or drink; and being robbed at gunpoint of every Penny they owned. The family's need to reach the UK was intensified by their eldest son's deteriorating condition, and the prospect of life-saving treatment it offered. The boy with two hearts is not only a tale of a family in crisis, but a love letter to the NHS, which provided hope and reassurance as they sought asylum in the UK and fought to save their loved ones.
