The Other Hand
Little Bee 'escapes' from her immigration detention centre almost by accident, and, aided by her excellent Queen's english, she tracks down the woman who saved her life (but not her sister's life) on a Nigerian beach, several years ago. She arrives on the day that the english woman is burying her dead husband, and together they try and help each other recover from their various traumas.
Excellent, really good story, moving characters, and some very funny bits.
