Revolution Baby

£6.99

Product description

Everybody had a dream, images of the fantasy life they'd lead if not trapped behind an office desk.
Saffia's dream was to live in the sunshine. She didn't realise it would lead to raising her first child up fifty-eight steps in a concrete Kyrgyz tenement.

Saffia had barely heard of Kyrgyzstan when she agreed to move there with her water-engineer husband, Matthew.
Kyrgyzstan is a small country of huge landscapes, a smudge in the vastness of Central Asia. Saffia arrived in the ex-Soviet republic fifteen weeks pregnant, scared about life in a place where people eat sheep's eyes, drink fermented mare's milk and live in felt tents.

Revolution Baby is Saffia's story of leaving Bristol for Bishkek and raising Baby Tom in the shadow of the Tien Shan mountains, while Matthew struggles to bring clean water to isolated villages.
