By consistently mentioning Gemma’s accounts of sharing her fairy tale story of Briar Rose and the intentional attention to detail, Yolen highlights the strong intimacy associated with traditional storytelling and its power to create powerful connections. As Gemma began telling her story in the beginning of the novel, “the sisters nodded and stepped back a pace each, as if the story demanded their grandmother’s face, not just her scent” (Yolen 21). The way Gemma tells her stories to her granddaughters implies that there is a very traditional, intimate story time setting.

For Najmah, it was after her mother had died and she had to get to Peshawar and she had to go through refugee camps and very rough, dangerous roads a path to get there. For Nur, it happened after his father was killed and he had escaped from the Taliban. Because Najmah and Nur had to travel all over the Middle East by themselves, their lives were greatly impacted as refugees rather than living their own lives on their farm in Golestan, their home village. When Nur first showed up at Nusrat’s house, the place where Najmah was staying, he “showed up with nothing,” as he had been traveling alone by foot and getting a ride wherever he could. “he had no money, no clothes, other than the ones that he wears, no blanket, and no weapons”(Staples, 157).
