Thanks to Goodreads FirstReads program for the copy of this book.

I really, really enjoyed this novel, unexpectedly so. It's beautifully written, and I love how all everything comes together (even in the midst of so much death and loss) through the generations.

I'm so glad that this has been republished (and translated) because I think the Palestinian experience is so unseen in American / Western media. We need more books like this.
