It Takes a Child to Lead Them Home

A love lost. A soul restored. A decade of secrets and separation.

In A THOUSAND FLYING THINGS, an idealistic American humanitarian worker with a decade of field experience arrives in 1991 Southern Sudan hoping to save the world, but it’s the love of a child and the return of an old flame from Lebanon that ends up saving and healing her instead. 

Qasim, charming and cosmopolitan, trying to save his homeland, Lebanon, and Dianna, brilliant and beautiful, trying to save children in war-torn 1990s Southern Sudan, bump into one another in Nairobi and fall in love again. But they must choose between their work and their love. In the face of cultural barriers, their commitment to family and career, and ongoing war, can they find the strength to stand up for both love and a lasting peace?

Culture shaped them. Love transformed them. Will a child unite them?
