About this product
- DescriptionIn April 2003, twenty-one-year-old English photojournalism student Tom Hurndall was shot in the head as he was rescuing a Palestinian child in the town of Rafah in the Gaza Strip. Here is Tom's mother's account of his courageous quest, its tragic end and a devastated family's struggle for justice in a case that made legal history. It is an elegy for a son, full of loss but also of hope. Written with honesty, dignity and insight, this moving story of a remarkable young man, a mother's love, and a devoted family gives a human face to a conflict that, directly and indirectly, affects us all.
