A story of twelve year old Soraya, an Afghan asylum seeker.
Soraya is a storyteller. The stories from Afghanistan keep her memories alive in Australia, as she starts a new life under the shadow of a Temporary Protection Visa. But it is the ebony horse which flies through her dreams that helps her find a strange land between remembering and forgetting, a land where she can be safe. This is a magical and uplifting story that will capture your heart.
The black horse gallops faster. The ground is shaking, the dirt at my feet curls like a wave. We will not make it, I scream, and I wake before we can be crushed.
