Two Sisters, by the international bestselling author Åsne Seierstad, tells the unforgettable story of a family divided by faith. Sadiq and Sara, Somali immigrants raising a family in Norway, one day discover that their teenage daughters Leila and Ayan have vanished—and are en route to Syria to aid the Islamic State. Åsne joined us to share the story of the sisters’ journey from secular, social democratic Norway to the front lines of the war in Syria, and their father Sadiq’s harrowing attempt to find them.
