TREMAIN, R.: Road Home (The) (Abridged)

Lev arrives in the UK with little English and even less money. For all its promise, London leaves him lonely and isolated, facing the seamier side of economic migration, until he discovers a passion that could lead him back home. But having a dream and realising it are two very different things. Humane and deeply moving, The Road Home is vividly filled with the voices of those struggling to belong, whether in their own land or an adopted one.
