Description

1948: The lives of the Abulheja family are changed forever when they are forcibly removed from their ancestral home in Ein Hod and sent to live in a refugee camp in Jenin. Through Amal, the bright granddaughter of the patriarch, we witness the stories of her brothers: one, a stolen boy who becomes an Israeli soldier; and the other, who as a result of sacrificing everything for the Palestinian cause, becomes his brother's unwitting enemy. Amal's own dramatic story weaves its way between these strands. This is a moving and powerful novel that will have an enormous impact on all those who read it.
