"One man diving into the past." "One woman emerging from the depths. " At the age of seventeen, Amelia Baide won silver at the Olympic Games and was the second-fastest woman in the pool. Then one tragic night she crashed into a lake and was dragged out without a pulse. Now twenty-four, she is still haunted by it and hasn't swum again. Until this year's anniversary of the accident. It is a day unlike any other and a strange turn of events finds Amelia back at a swimming pool. Harry Jamieson had eyes for one girl while women and the media had eyes for him. As a trainer of Olympic athletes, he was an in-demand man. Until one boozy morning after ... But from bad luck to pure chance he runs into his old flame, Amelia, at a swimming pool no less. She doesn't remember a thing from the night of the crash. And Harry knows every single secret. The pair joins forces-a comeback for Amelia and Harry's ultimate coaching opportunity. But dodging waves is hard to do, and even the strongest swimmer may sink. Where We Belong "is a second-chance love story for young and old, for swimming enthusiasts and romantics at heart."

Rummana’s writing is thoughtful, heartfelt and encompassing of ever-widening experiences and a deepening knowledge of the human condition. This volume, Where Do I Belong, takes the reader on a journey that involves a thematic stream stretching from the shores of the Padma to Lake Ontario. There is nostalgia and longing in such a journey, brought out in such pieces as ‘Hot Apple Fritters and Hot Roshogollas’, a prose meditation on the manner in which Canadian apple fritters evoke the earlier experienced pleasures of roshogollas from a sweet shop in Noakhali, Bangladesh, and the shores of Lake Ontario conjure up early layers of the Padma, Megna and Jamuna, while listening to jazz resonates with the earlier folk music of Bengal. The imagery in ‘Radhachura Kathalchapa and Bogainvillea’ contrasts the snow and frost of an adopted northern country (admittedly along with the compensating cherry blossoms of spring and autumn colours) with the warmth and breathtaking beauty of the radhachuras at dawn in a ‘long forgotten ethereal unbelievable bliss of my birthplace’—the only base where it is possible to have total relaxation. Themes of displacement, discrimination, oppression and the violence of war are worked out in cultural specificity in such poems as ‘Blood Road’ ‘Solitary confinement’ and ‘The darkness of the night pulled her’. Others such as ‘The rat race’, ‘From captivity to captivity’ and ‘Wrong address’ concern the universal human condition and struggles that transcends race, colour and linguistic differences.
Malik, the main character, is a young Yemeni who has been sent to live with his aunt in France after his mother's death. Malik becomes aware that his aunt has lied when she told her Yemeni family that living in France was wonderful. She was too ashamed to tell the truth. She could not admit that she was struggling, facing a multitude of difficulties, racism, poverty, exploitation, solitude, nostalgia and her broken dreams. Malik has to find his place in this other culture, so different from his own. Hence the title 'Where do I belong?' He is lost, grieving his country, its ancestral traditions and, above all, his mother. Like a tightrope walker, he finds his own way as different events take place. He grows up.
Rosa migrated to Australia when 11 years old, in 1961. She was born in S. Caterina dello Ionio, a village on the hills overlooking the Ionian Sea, to the east, in the arch of the foot of the Italian Peninsula. When her eldest granddaughter, Matilda, started asking questions, what it was like growing up, Rosa decided to write it down for her other grandchildren. Life in S. Caterina was like growing up in a medieval village. This changed when a quarter of the population migrated for a better life. This book describes how Rosa remembers growing up, the freedom, the food, the customs, and festivals. If some of the details are inaccurate, my apologies. It's how I remember them - with great affection.

It is neither a thesis, nor it is a novel, Not it is a fantasy, not even a fairy tale. With an event of mass disobedience we start, No shot is fired, no one is physically hurt. On a sunny day, at every airport of the world, People queue up for check-in with no visa in hand. One and all, in all the classes economy, first or business, No one had a visa; world citizenship each like to harness. No international flight takes off From Wellington, where the day starts; From other airports of New Zealand too, No other plane departs. Nowhere in the world, from any airport, Took off any International flight. Following day was no different, And the following night. All airlines give up, No end of the tunnel, no ushering light. The main suspect behind these events was John. Johns identity is however very clear; To all passengers he is very dear. For questioning his role in mass disobedience, Arrested was John, and served punishing sentence. He was punished to undergo forensic probes, For extracting his memoir and his hopes, To get the events that led him to his roles, To his visions to cross boundary ropes.
