Lyman has breathed the dust and violence in Iraq, whilst there in 2007, and it is interesting to note that he comes from a renowned family of military historians. Except for the moment I still live. He has been telling his story to the Naval intelligence officer Lt Peters who is posing as a journalist. Aadil volunteers as a science teacher, with the school science labs providing the perfect cover for his work - and indeed, one of the saddest ironies of the book is the genuine talent he has for teaching and the inspirational effect he has on his students. Except for the moment I still live. Yet it is not very much different from hundreds and thousands of other stories in this country.

See what Iraq has made me? The title of the book comes from his touching belief that each person has the capacity to be a flower to others through their life. The insecurity and fear portrayed in their daily lives is palpable. Seemingly simple it had many layers, and yet an easy read. Given the setting, this is a surprisingly, and beautifully, domestic book. Within 'Flowers of Baghdad' there is a fine balance between hope and despair and it is plain to see that only continuous efforts can ensure the future isn't darkened irrevocably by violence and tragedy. All they want for their families is a normal and safe existence, free from the terror and desperation of bombs, gunfire and homelessness.
