Farewell, My Orange
Salimah, a single mother of two from Nigeria, works the night shift at a supermarket in small-town Australia. At an ESL class, she meets Sayuri, who has come to Australia from Japan with her husband and put her own education on hold to take care of her infant daughter. Together, Salimah and Sayuri navigate isolation, a new language, and devastating loss on their way to a lifelong friendship.
Written with great warmth, Farewell, My Orange offers optimism in the face of adversity and a touching portrait of our need for others and the certainty of change.
