Description:

Fifteen year old Samar and her family are refugees, fleeing the conflict in 1990s Kabul after the Russians, and then the Taliban, turn their lives inside out. They are aboard the Trans-Siberian Express as it travels across Russia towards an uncertain future. With the help of Napoleon, the ticket collector, her beloved copy of Anna Karenina, and her family, Samar narrates the story of their epic journey away from their happy life in Kabul and everything they have known. But as Samar's tale unfolds and the secrets of the family are unearthed, listeners slowly discover that the truth is far more devastating-and more full of hope-than they could ever have imagined. Under the Almond Tree is a story about how we keep the truth from those we love-and even from ourselves-to hold on to the beliefs that underpin our lives; it's a story about extraordinary resilience and courage in a turbulent world, a world where nothing can be relied upon but everything is possible.
