   schema:description "Award-winning reporter Emily Dugan follows the tumultuous lives of a group of immigrants, all facing extraordinary obstacles in their quest to live in the UK. Mihai, 29, works in construction in London and longs for a National Insurance Number. Syrian refugee Emad, 35, set up the Free Syrian League and danger in the UK became as real as it had been in Damascus. He worked illegally in London to pay for his mother to be smuggled from Turkey on a near-deadly trip across the Mediterranean - but the battle to get her into Britain has only just started. Teaching assistant Klaudia is one of many thousands of Polish people now living in Boston - itself a microcosm of poorly managed migration. Dugan's timely and acutely observed book reveals numerous intense personal dramas of ordinary men and woman as they struggle to find somewhere to call home."@en ;
