Traces of Sandalwood

by Anna Soler-Pont and Asha Miró
£11.99   paperback  World Editions (2016)

Traces of Sandalwood by Anna Soler-Pont and Asha Miró Muna, a young Indian orphan, is working in a carpet factory in Bombay. She cannot forget about her sister Sita, from whom she was separated. Sita, who lives in an orphanage in the same city, doesn’t remember her older sister and dreams about having a real family and finding happiness. Meanwhile, eight-year-old Solomon lives in Addis Ababa, in Ethiopia. When the revolution breaks out, he is sent to Cuba by boat on his own, together with hundreds of other orphan children, in the hope of education and better future.
After many detours across three continents, Muna, Sita and Solomon each finally find their purpose in life and the family they’ve all longed for.
