THE REBEL AND THE THIEF

À propos

B>b>From the internationally bestselling author of The Art of Hearing Heartbeats, a moving tale of forbidden love and extraordinary courage in the face of disaster. /b>/b>br>br>Eighteen-year-old Niri and his family live a modest but secure life working in the villa of the wealthy Benzes. But when the pandemic comes, they are all let go, and left staring into the abyss of abject poverty. As their situation grows increasingly desperate, the once rule-abiding monastery student decides he wont wait at the mercy of a corrupt, indifferent government, and rebels against his fathers resigned acceptance.br>;;;;;;;;;;; Sneaking through the locked-down city at night, past the military patrols, Niri returns to the villa to take what his family needs to survive. Waiting for him there is his childhood friend--and the Benzes daughter--Mary, who has a bigger plan that will change their lives forever.br>A universal story of love across social classes, The Rebel and the Thief poignantly shows how adversity can teach us what matters most: courage to resist, will to change, and unconditional trust in each other.
