This is the first commercial literary work ever to inhabit a Palestinian voice. It is a hugely significant and important work of fiction
I have never before read such a fascinating novel on Palestine and Israel. It gives deep insights while affecting me emotionally as only great novels can do
I loved it ... what she's done is that great Jane Eyre thing: here is my life, here is a life, from the very beginning to its very end; here is her family and her heart, her people and her land. You travel with her on every page
The voice of Susan Abulhawa is honest, every word is heartfelt, the aim to honour history and acknowledge its facts. This book is a "tour" waiting to take with it all kinds of readers: the already converted, the uninformed, and especially those who are fortunate enough to live secure lives
...a powerful and passionate insight into what many Palestinians have had to endure since the state of Israel was created
Powerful and moving
'a terrifically affecting novel, thanks to Abulhawa's elegance as a writer. It's
a novel to savor'
Abulhawa's writing shines... Friendship, adolescence, love: ordinary
events, offset against extraordinary circumstances, make the story live'
A poignant, lyrical tale tracing four generations of the Abulheja family as they suffer loss after loss...the devastation and agonies wreaked on ordinary Palestinians are depicted through the struggles of the book's protagonist. The 2010 novel, which won critical acclaim, has just been translated into Arabic for the first time by Bloomsbury Qatar Foundation Publishing.
