Description

Set on the island of Cyprus, Yannis is a poacher who dreams of a new way of life but for now traps and kills tiny protected songbirds to be sold on the black market. Yannis is in love with Nisha who works as a nanny, while also mothering her own child back in Sri Lanka by the screen of a phone.

With infinite tenderness and skill, the author has crafted a powerful story about the unseen who walk among us, cleaning our homes and caring for our children, and explores what it is to migrate in search of freedom, only to find yourself trapped.
