The cosmopolitan daughter of Saharawi émigrés travels to visit her family in the forgotten refugee city-camps scattered in the Western Sahara desert.
At the beginning of the Coronavirus outbreak, what was supposed to be a long-awaited homecoming becomes
a desperate adventure escaping border guards and surviving on candy bars, all
the while trying to avoid losing her cool with unwanted and unlikely traveling
companions. On her odyssey back home through
a changing world, she faces starvation, the possibility of arrest, and
kidnapping, as she attempts to cross the border into Algeria by any means
possible. Alternating between tense, poignant, and funny, this heartfelt
first-hand account explores life and lessons from the plight of the Saharawi
people. Sara's story questions the meaning of cultural heritage and the
universal desire to have a homeland.
Tomorrow, Tomorrow, Insha Allah is Sara’s first book and is the first memoir published in English by a Saharawi woman writer. The book includes historical and personal black & white images, color image insert, and maps of the Saharawi territory and Sara’s journey.
