Ruqaya Izzidien is an Iraqi-Welsh freelance journalist and writer currently based in Morocco. Since graduating from Durham University she has also lived and worked in Cairo and the Gaza Strip.


Offers a powerful retelling of the history of British intervention in Iraq. * Cambrian News *
"A novel defined by love and moral conviction. . . Izzidien's great triumph is to illustrate how nuanced and knotty history can be" * The National *
There is a nuanced complexity in the characters, family dynamics, historical context, and sense of time and geographical location . . . . a beautifully rendered panoramic study of some of World War I's secondary theaters of war. * Media Diversified *
