The Journey: From the killing fields of Darfur to Royal Ascot [9781912624249]

(1 review) Write a Review

'What Abdul has gone through is simply unimaginable. But his story shows the incredible power of sport to bring people together and help them to heal, even after the most appalling suffering.' CLARE BALDING

'A lesson to us all in courage and hope' LORD DUBS, who escaped Nazi Germany on the Kindertransport in 1939
____________________________________________________

Abdul is just 7 years old when his parents are killed before his eyes.

As a brutal war sweeps Sudan, Abdul and his 3-year-old brother are forced to flee.

Their gruelling journey across the Sahara to a refugee camp in Chad is fraught with danger, and every day is a struggle against hunger and disease.

Until one day Abdul is offered a chance to escape. A chance that could save him, but will force him to make the most heartbreaking decision of his life.

Abdul's death-defying flight leaves deep scars. But his affinity with animals provides a lifeline, when he is offered the chance to work with elite racehorses. Including one owned by the Queen.


AUTHOR: Ros Wynne-Jones is a writer and journalist who has won multiple awards for her reporting from African warzones. She is also the author of the novel Something Is Going To Fall Like Rain, set in South Sudan.

    The Journey: From the killing fields of Darfur to Royal Ascot

    Posted by FL on 18th Nov 2020

    'The Journey' is both deeply moving and informative. Abdul gives a detailed account of what he remembers of his experiences fleeing his home at age seven and living as a migrant in several countries in an attempt to find safety. His ability to survive the most horrifying events is astounding, and despite the most traumatic events he can still reflect on his life and recognise the generosity of others.

    I shall be recommending the book to friends. I am sure it will raise readers' awareness of the plight of migrants and the ordeals they face. Hopefully it will help many people to become more welcoming to people seeking refuge and a safer, better life in our country.
