"A richly layered exploration of what it means to be human, Blood and Silver brings fresh perspectives to migration, displacement and belonging, while telling a tale that reads in part like a thriller" Edwin Cameron

"A book of great humanity and courage, taking the reader on a hunt across time and place and back to the challenges of the present. Deeply personal, deeply affecting." Philippe Sands, author of East West Street
