Deferred But she can’t stop worrying about Aneeka her beautiful headstrong sister back in London or their brother Parvaiz who’s disappeared in pursuit of his own dream to prove himself to the dark legacy of the jihadist father he never knew When he resurfaces half a globe away Isma’s worst fears are confirmedThen Eamon There are so many timely subjects right now world concerns and threats and authors have responded in kind This novel features two Muslim families in Britain two families that have very different opinions on family and how to show or display their Muslim beliefs It moves the themes in Sophocles Antigone to present times I remember very little about Antigone refreshed my memory on Wiki but I cannot really knowledgeably comment on the adeuecy of the comparisonThe novel starts out slowly paced rather inoculously as a young Muslim women who has spent many years raising her two twin siblings Now that they are old enough Isma decides it is time to complete her interrupted education The familyy of three has long been under the surveillance of the British Security service as their father was a known jihadist who died on the way to GuantanamoWe learn about the methods used to recruit young people usually 18 or 19 to the Islamic terrorist cause The novel is narrated in alternating chapters by the five main characters Each succeeding chapter is intense and by the time we hear from Aneeka this story had radically changed become super charged very intense The novel displays a confidence not only in prose but in how the story is related which I found extremely effectiveComplex issues Love of family youthful mistakes how much can be forgiven Government stances versus family fear versus love and the difficulties of Muslims how they must act to fit in with society Long listed for the Booker I find tis a very worthy addition Unforgettable some of the visuals displaying a sister's love I don't think I will forgetARC from edelweiss

Home FireN enters the sisters’ lives Son of a powerful political figure he has his own birthright to live up to or defy Is he to be a chance at love The means of Parvaiz’s salvation Suddenly two families’ fates are inextricably devastatingly entwined in this searing novel that asks What sacrifices will we make in the name of lo im not familiar with the story of antigone so i cant comment on how this compares as a retelling but as a story about family sacrifice and identity this is one to undoubtedly make you thinkwhich i have its actually taken me awhile to think about how i want to ratereview this immediately upon finishing my gut reaction was 3 stars its an good story but nothing great it uite short so there isnt a lot of development which leads to a lack of deep connection with the characters even if they are interesting so again its good but not great so why then can i not stop thinking about this theres just something so compelling about this story how its written how its structured and dont even get me started on that ending i think im still in shock theres just a certain uality to this that makes me want to overlook all of its flaws a certain uality that makes me feel guilty for calling this a good story when it feels like so much i really dont know how to explain it so if you have a couple of hours to spare this short but insightful book is definitely worth your time ↠ 4 stars
