From the first page...beautifully written and expertly woven narrative takes you on a harrowing journey from Nermina’s privileged life in the suburbs of Sarajevo into the trauma of the Balkan war...not only illuminates the experience of refugees in America, but makes you think about family, loss and love in new ways.
"Never again." My presentation reminds readers that NERMINA'S CHANCE addresses yet another genocide, this time in 1992 Bosnia. A work of historical fiction, NERMINA’S CHANCE reveals inherent intersections between the Bosniaks (Bosnian Muslims) and the Jewish diasporas; both have experienced profound intergenerational trauma and face ongoing discrimination. This novel provides an ideal starting point for a dialogue focusing on refugees/survivors still suffering the effects war and displacement.
