The themes of motherhood, female migration, racism, love and poaching intertwine as in a plea for us to see. The thorough research done for this beautiful novel paid off: I could follow the events and see the characters as if I was there.
Some readers are more sensitive than others and might find the description of birds poaching in Cyprus disturbing. I found the description of the faith of migrant women more disturbing. And sometimes, we need a bit of shaking up in our comfy world we interact with as if we wear white gloves on, while others do the work for us.
