Coming Soon: Leila Aboulela’s Latest Work of Fiction, “River Spirit”

Leila Aboulela is a multi-award-winning British-Sudanese author known for her depictions of Muslim women. Her new novel, “River Spirit,” tells the story of two siblings orphaned by an attack on their village. Their ensuing lives are intertwined with the political upheaval in Sudan, starting with a radical branch of Islam revolting against the Egyptian government and eventually the country’s colonization by British Christians. 

From a review by author Aminatta Forna:

“‘River Spirit’ had me gripped from the first page. This is real history, imagined in splendid detail, a story of ordinary people caught in extraordinary times.”

– Aminatta Forna
