The Other Hand by Chris Cleave

GENRE: Contemporary | PAGES: 355

My rating: ★★★★

From the first sentence to the last I was gripped. The Other Hand is told in two strong voices – that of Nigerian Little Bee and English Sarah. The way their lives and worlds came together, clashing but never merging despite all efforts, was both beautiful and disturbing to witness.

From the author of the international bestseller Incendiary comes a haunting novel about the tenuous friendship that blooms between two disparate strangers—one an illegal Nigerian refugee, the other a recent widow from suburban London.
