Description: Experienced journalist Charlotte McDonald-Gibson puts her foreign correspondent's hat on to bring us face-to-face with Europe's refugee crisis. Focusing on five individuals from countries in sub-Saharan Africa and the Middle East, she presents their stories in all their individual and collective misery: what has happened to them and their families, and their options and hope for the future. As well as giving a human face to this complex issue, the author also provides the historical and political context for these desperate journeys and Europe's response to them.

A well-documented and compassionate accounting of an ongoing humanitarian disaster.
