November 1967, in Aden, Yemen: Dara and Silloo Barucha’s serene life with their family is interrupted when violence erupts after the British announce their plan for a swift exit from the country. Things take a turn for the worse when the family business is seized, and they are targeted by members of the revolution. Dara is whisked away as a political prisoner, while Silloo is put under house arrest with her three young children and mother-in-law. As the different family members embark on their harrowing journeys in hopes of being reunited, they constantly face challenges. The looming question: Will they make it out alive?
Meet Roxana Trabulsi as she describes the true stories that are reflected in her novel Of Mud and Honey.
