About this item
Even though Sarah had her own swing attached to her own beloved tree, she was not a princess.
"My feet can touch the sun!"
That is the first thing Sarah remembers when she closes her eyes.
That was what she said to Sami three summers ago, the summer when everything changed.
... And so begins the story of Sarah, a young girl who sees magic in the world, who talks to the wind, and who always looks for colours.
Sarah's Journey is a modern-day saga that stretches over seas and continents. Along the way, she will cope with loss and uncertainty. Like wild salmon in the sea, Sarah must follow the song in her heart that keeps her swimming ever towards her dreams. Will Sarah be able to overcome the obstacles in her path?
"My story is like Sarah's, and I am strong, just like her." - Shadia, 9-year-old refugee
