A novel about the struggle of Iraqis in exile. 

Based on tragically true events, Between Baghdad and the World is a gripping account of the life of an Iraqi exile. Dunya, a young girl born into a wealthy family, led a seemingly fulfilled life in 1970s Baghdad. Yet fate had other plans for her when her eldest brother, Basim, joined the Islamic Iraqi resistance against the tyrannous Ba’ath regime. After her family falls under the watchful eye of the regime, they are forcefully deported to Iran, in 1980, where war soon begins.

This book tells the intimate story of the struggles many Iraqis, like Dunya, faced as they fought unyieldingly to rebuild their lives as refugees. Clinging onto the love of Islam and the love of a homeland, Dunya triumphed against the odds to create a new life out of ashes.

Easy read- eye opener

This was such an easy read, yet so powerful in its impact. Hanan has clearly written from the heart and portrayed the story of millions of Iraqis and Kurds worldwide. It is such a privelege to have been able to gain such an insight into Hanan's family's story. Recommend it 100%

Heartfelt and enlightening

A beautifully written book showcasing the suffering of Iraqis in exile. Highly recommend to anyone who seeks to learn about the injustices war and exile has engendered to people.
