This book should be read by everyone in the USA and in the UK, who is at all interested in the origins of the Arab Israeli conflict which lies to this day at the root of much that is happening in the M.E now. I read it because I have spent time living in the M.E and visited the Palestinian refugee camps in the West bank and in Gaza. I know that all that happens in the novel happened just like that in reality. The author writes from a deep personal experience of the subject. It often makes the reader weep. But we in the West, especially here in the UK, who had such a hand in creating the political events in which her fictionalised characters have their being carry great responsibility for a huge injustice. After the holocaust this is the next huge atrocity committed in the 20th cent. It is an excellent and deeply passionate book written in beautiful poetic English, and is not a translation from Arabic, but carries many echoes of the Arabic language in choice of phrase and vocabulary which I for one savoured with pleasure.

Heart-rending, beautiful, desperately sad, but with poignantly written uplifting moments. I couldn't put this book down; every time I stopped reading it the characters and their lives stayed with me for hours.... Even though the characters are fictional, many of the events she describes are not, and one is left with a sense of utter desolation and rage for those who have been through - and are going through - what she describes in the book.

This book is a must-read for anyone with an interest in, or who wants to know about the history of Palestine since 1948.

This book was recommended to me by several people. What a beautifully written, emotional and gripping read. In view of recent events in Palestine, this book has helped me understand the history of the unrest.
This is one of those books that will stay with me for a long time. Amazing. A must read.

I absolutely loved this book - I had chosen it for a book club read and we all loved it, although using the word "love" to describe a story so tragic may be a little trite. One of the reviews mentioned that the writing was too simplistic - I felt that the story was simply told, but that this simplicity and lack of detailed desription of all the horror made it all the more poignant and credible. There is only one bit right at the end (when you read it you will know what I am referring to!) that was unsatisfying to read as it did not ring true with the rest of the novel, and was not really necessary to add. I finished the book thinking that I had a much clearer understanding of why people would be driven to do some of the extreme things we read about in the papers, and it gave a Palestinian perspective on the troubles in their beautiful country. I also think that a lot of the book was about love and family and humanity. I cannot believe that it is not a world-wide best seller!

Incredibly heart breaking read. Shocking story that should be more widely read and understood. I know this is a novel but that it is based on factual accounts from eye witnesses. The western world should be ashamed of their complacency and complicity in these events, this story has changed the way I think about Israel and Palestine. I hope many more people read it and maybe something might change as a result?
