This memoir will make you laugh... it will make you cry. It will make you laugh until you cry!
"My family is a writer's dream," Glim said, "Filled with remarkable characters but then every family has its share of dreamers and doers, cowards and cads, heroes and heroines. I hope after reading BEGOTTEN: With Love you will love my family as much as I do... warts and all. More than that, I hope you will love your family even more!" [close]

by Michelle Cohen Corasanti (Goodreads Author)
Against a background torn from the pages of today’s headlines, The Almond Tree, by Michelle Cohen Corasanti recasts the Palestinians in Israel and Gaza, a people frequently in the news, but often misrepresented and more misunderstood. A Huffington Post article predicts it will be “one of the best sellers’ of the decade.”
The author Les Edgerton wrote:
Ichmad’s story is a big-hearted story of a small Palestinian boy who learns to survive in a brutal environment and doesn’t simply endure, but emerges from the fire with the wisdom gleaned from the example of a father who has taught him that all men have value, even their enemies. A tale of innocence moving through a vicious world, compassion learned against an environment of daily horrors, and wisdom forged through a boy’s journey through a life we would never wish upon our own children.
The book’s universal message of resilience, hope and forgiveness will hit home with anyone who has faced adversity. Cohen Corasanti’s novel brings humanity and clarity to the Arab-Israeli conflict, exploring themes of redemption, family sacrifice and the benefits of education and tolerance. Her personal experience of living in Israel for seven years and her undergraduate degree from the Hebrew University and her MA from Harvard, both in Middle Eastern studies, gave her the perspective, insight and ability to craft this story.
