How can love survive betrayal?

For as long as they can remember, siblings Isma, Aneeka and Parvaiz have had nothing but each other. But darker, stronger forces will divide Parvaiz from his sisters and drive him to the other side of the world, as he sets out to fulfil the dark legacy of the jihadist father he never knew.

'A powerful exploration of the clash between society, family and faith in the modern world' (The Guardian)

'Fearless but hugely troubling ... one pays it the highest compliment one can pay fiction: it makes you think. Uncomfortably' (The Times)

'Brave and brilliant ... shocking and strangely beautiful' (Sunday Times)

'Occasionally you know that one of the writers alive at the same time as you has written the book they were born to write. Home Fire has lit a light that'll never go out; Shamsie's version of Antigone reveals the ancient tragedy we're living now' (Ali Smith, Books of the Year, The Guardian)
