Then, the Syrian civil war starts. She joins a peaceful protest against her government and gets shot by a soldier. To stay safe, Doaa and her family move to Egypt. Doaa is forced to quit school and work in a factory to help support her family. Soon after, she meets another refugee and they get married.

《地中海的眼淚》是一個關於一位難民努力掙扎要開始新人生的真實故事。這本書一開始講到,朵亞‧艾兒‧薩摩亞只是一位住在敘利亞的一般青少女。接著,敘利亞內戰爆發了。她加入針對她政府的和平抗議活動而被一個士兵開槍擊中。為了保命,朵亞和她的家人搬去埃及。朵亞被迫輟學去一間工廠上班來幫忙維持家計。不久後,她遇見另一個難民,後來他們結婚了。

 

Life in Egypt is dangerous, though, so Doaa and her husband try to move to Europe. On the way there, their boat is attacked by pirates and starts to sink. The passengers all jump into the sea and start drowning one by one. Doaa rescues a baby and grabs anything she can find to float. She’s forced to watch as her husband dies in front of her eyes. Although she’s cold and tired, Doaa continues trying to keep herself and the baby alive. After four days, a Japanese boat finally arrives and rescues Doaa and the baby.
