    This is a fantastic coffee table book, and one I have purchased for a few people that have also enjoyed having it. Such a great book of different stories of people’s lives, each one interesting, and unique. You would never know unless you get a copy. Great work and vision Nicola Gray!

    Loved this book. An amazing range of stories and faces – people who’ve faced huge adversity and have overcome it to achieve amazing things through persistence and resilience. It really puts your own life in perspective and makes you feel inspired about the human spirit. I would love to see more people read this book and shift their perspective on people who come to Australia as refugees.

    This beautifully written and presented book puts humans at the centre of the Australian migration debate and refocuses attention on the real stories of the real people “who’ve come across the seas”. Nicola Gray’s skilful interviews have drawn stories of courage, sadness, loss and joy, recorded in an elegant simplicity that honours each clear voice. The humans behind the stories shine through, their faces a reminder that we share our cities and suburbs with these brave people every day, living and working alongside them. Now we know some of their stories and we are richer for it. There is tremendous generosity of spirit in this work. The migration debate in this country would be a distinctly more enlightened one if all humans of Australia read this book.
