The sisters are now wives, mothers, and trailblazers. But God has a final test in store...After a long absence apart, Trisha, Audrey, and Sienna gather in their hometown of Rosefield, Idaho. Together, they’ve survived adultery, depression, and the seduction of wealth. They might have lost their innocence along the way, but they’ve also found their virtue. So what if God’s greatest test is yet to come?Trisha is no longer a lonely single mother struggling to make ends meet. But just as she thinks she’s found her happy ending, the past rears its ugly head. And this time, the threat is far greater than any she’s faced before.A devoted mother to her adopted daughter Esther, Audrey struggles with a secret desire to conceive. Is this part of God’s plan, or should she be satisfied with the blessings she’s already received?Life in a women’s camp in Mali, Africa, is not what Faizan envisioned when he asked Zainah to be his wife. The days are quiet and uneventful, until an afternoon walk leads them to stumble upon a shocking surprise. Faizan swears Zainah to secrecy, but in a moment of weakness, she confides in best friend Leila, leading to life-changing consequences for them all. The sixth installment of The Sisters of Rosefield series sees God’s plan reach its final, climactic resolution. Will the characters we’ve come to cherish be blessed by love, or broken by loss? It might just take a miracle! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Autumn Woods.

'Once I started reading Travellers, I couldn't stop. With power and control, it plunges the reader into a maze of lives that crisscross between Africa and Europe. Refugees and not only refugees hungering for the north, pushing their way through the barriers of waves, human failings and unrealistic dreams.The novel has all the weight of art with the sting of breaking news. I loved it. It is Habila at his best' Leila Aboulela Poignant and beautifully sculpted, a novel about exile, identity and the many kinds of travellers moving through our modern world - from the Caine Prize-winning author of Oil on Water and Waiting for an Angel Modern Europe is a melting pot of migrating souls: among them a Nigerian American couple on a prestigious arts fellowship, a transgender film student seeking the freedom of authenticity, a Libyan doctor who lost his wife and child in the waters of the Mediterranean, and a Somalian shopkeeper trying to save his young daughter from forced marriage. And, though the divide between the self-chosen exiles and those who are forced to leave home may feel solid, in reality such boundaries are endlessly shifting and frighteningly soluble. Moving from a Berlin nightclub to a Sicilian refugee camp to the London apartment of a Malawian poet, Helon Habila evokes a rich mosaic of migrant experiences. And through his characters' interconnecting fates, he traces the extraordinary pilgrimages we all might make in pursuit of home.

'Finn has a light, deft touch as a writer, but the images she conjures up are so subversively creepy they haunt you for days' Spectator, Best Books of the Year 'Arresting - Finn conjures up Africa perfectly' Margaret Forster 'A brilliantly written account of a soul in torment and the way she is pursued by her own fate. Finn evokes the darkness and light of Africa with the same sureness that she calls forth the brightness and shadow of the human heart' Tim Lott 'Haunting and atmospheric - I was completely hooked' Leila Aboulela 'Melanie Finn's second novel lives up to the promise of her first. Shame pulls off the feat of being both chilling and redemptive. She explores vast themes - the solitude of bereavement, the eternal nature of maternal love, the irony of fate - with a light, deft touch.' Michela Wrong, author of It's Our Turn to Eat and Borderlines REDEMPTION IS A FOREIGN COUNTRY - or so Pilgrim Jones hopes as she looks up at a departures board and takes the first flight. She is running away; from her failed marriage and from the carnage she has caused in a small Swiss village. Pilgrim alights on the edge of Africa. Over confessions and strong gin, she is lured into a world of mercenaries and philanthropists, delusional heroes and witchdoctors in polyester suits. Here, in a land where fireflies light the sky, anything - even redemption - seems possible. But can she come to terms with her past before the past catches up with her?
