“Two Sisters” by Asne Seierstad is an unforgettable true story of one family falling into disarray and separation.

Living in a new country that was supposed to bring opportunity and success leads to the father adventuring into Syria to find his missing daughters. The book captures the fascinating transitions, dynamics and journey of a normal immigrant family that falls into disrepair.
