Bronwyn Birdsall – Time and Tide in Sarajevo

Sunday 4th September starting 2:30 pm for 3:00 pm

Launched by Therese Spruhan
  • Evelyn is teaching English in Sarajevo, a beautiful city still recovering almost two decades after the long and brutal siege in the 1990s.Life in the city is tenuous yet welcoming.

    Dedicated to her work preparing high-schoolers for a scholarship that could change the course of their lives, Evelyn feels more herself here than at home in Australia. But when the teenage son of a local hero is stabbed and it seems like a cover-up will let the killer go free, Sarajevans take to the streets in protest.

    When Evelyn discovers evidence that could ignite the volatile situation, putting both her students’ ambitions and her friendships at risk, she faces an impossible decision.

    Gripping and heartfelt, Time and Tidein Sarajevoasks: how do we find hope in a world that feels beyond repair?
