review The Map of Salt and Stars Ô eBook or Kindle ePUB free read The Map of Salt and Stars It is the summer of 2011 and Nour has just lost her father to cancer Her mother a cartographer who creates unusual hand painted maps decides to move Nour and her sisters from New York City back to Syria to be closer to their family But the country Nour’s mother once knew is changing and it isn’t long before protests and shelling threaten their uiet Homs neighborhood When a shell destroys Nour’s house and almost takes her life she and her family are forced to choose stay and risk violence or flee as refugees across seven countries. Bumping this up to five stars because months later the story is still crystal clear in my mind And I also went out and bought myself a physical edition of this beauty Definitely among my top reads of 2018 Happy book birthday to this wonderful bookYou know that wonderful feeling when you read the last page of a truly great story and then you clutch the book to your chest as if to hug the world within those pages That s how I m feeling right now I loved this book It was so simple and honest laden with the most lyrically beautiful prose and filled with gloriously human characters whose stories have touched me deeply The story unfurls through two time periods In the contemporary setting Syrian American Nour s life is upended when her beloved father dies and her mother moves the family back to Syria to the city of Homs 12 year old Nour grieves for her father and deals with that grief by recounting to the earth the story of her and her father s favourite heroine Rawiya and her adventures with the mapmaker Al Idrisi Nour hopes that somehow somewhere in the ground her father will hear her words and keep alive his spirit One day soon after the city of Homs is shelled leaving Nour and her family injured and homeless and so they flee both the city and the country becoming refugees The book intertwines their journey with that of Rawiya s and together the two stories bring alive the countries of Syria Jordan Egypt Libya Algeria Morocco together with the Spanish enclave of Ceuta on the North African coast Nour s story is a story painted with colour as she has a type of synaesthesia that makes her associate sights and sounds with colour This truly adds to the vibrancy of the storytelling and makes for an incredibly vivid reading experience As Syria and Syrian refugees are sadly so often in our newspapers and on our tv screens this story felt even vital to me The terrors that the family went through the losses the grief the atrocities that they experienced were made all the real because even though Nour and her family are fictional characters these are all genuine experiences of real people today The relationships that Nour had with her mother her sisters and her uncle felt so true to me Her mother was this wonderfully stoic woman Her commitment to keeping her family alive was incredible to read about and she has become one of my favourite mothering characters that I ve ever read about Huda and Zahra are Nour s two elder sisters and both are polar opposites Huda is definitely Nour s favourite and the love between the two of them is heartfelt and pure but Zahra is probably compelling to read about as there is much to her than meets the eye Rawiya s story is set in the twelfth century and it is coloured by fable and legend The author has brought together entirely fictional characters such as Rawiya with the historical cartographer called Al Idrisi to create a uniue and memorable story Rawiya disguises herself as a boy and becomes a sort of apprentice companion to Al Idrisi and accompanies him on a journey creating maps of the Middle East and North Africa that mirrors the journey that Nour s family are taking Rawiya s story is filled with mythical creatures otherworldly magic crusading battles great deeds for honour and respect and is eually as touching as Nour s which I was hugely surprised by as I did not expect to be so moved by a storyline that had elements of the fantastical about it I loved the evolution of Rawiya throughout the story as she became this fearsome warrior whose battles were fought in a literal sense than Nour s Yet somehow the author managed to weave these two disparate stories together whereby one became an almost echo of the other and it really set the scene for the reader to give a taster of Arabic culture and to begin to give some indication of what life must be like for those who are refugees and displaced from the place they call home A truly wonderful read that I would highly recommend to anyone who loves realistic stories AND retellings of old folk tales similar to Arabian Nights four and a half stars An e copy of this book was kindly provided to me by the publisher Orion via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review
