The Yellow House on Summer Street

by Alice Savage

Yusef, now called Joe, his American wife, Brita, and their two boys are just starting to make friends in their new neighborhood. War in Syria has driven Joe from his home. His family is looking forward to a quiet life on Summer Street when a call from across the world changes everything. Soon, Joe’s nephew Rashid, who lost his own father in the conflict, comes to live with them. Although he had a rough time escaping the civil war, Rashid is a hopeful young man with an easy smile and lots of energy. Unfortunately, where Rashid goes, trouble often follows.

The Yellow House Stories follow daily life on Summer Street, an American neighborhood where cultures meet, challenges emerge, and people learn how to live together.
