Kaiama L. GloverSammar and Rae’s story is one of division and difference, and of those miraculous places of intersection like love. For both characters, love means having someone to tell their stories to, without fear. It means effacing the boundaries of language, of nation, of religion — all no more than “data that fills forms.” In other words, love translates. It can be that simple, Aboulela suggests. And by the end of this novel, she almost has you believing it.
