Description:

 

 

Compelling reading for anyone who wants to understand the Arabs of Palestine at a turning point in their history. Intimate, compassionate portraits. Heartfelt, devastating and authoritative. 

 

Set in Bethlehem in 1920. A sense of foreboding hangs over Palestine society, now under British rule and recovering from years of war and hardship. Samira Lafiah is a spirited young woman in conflict with her prominent, traditional Catholic family who expect her to accept an arranged marriage. Can she defy her society's rigid conventions, find love and forge her own path? 

Meanwhile, the Christian and Muslim communities in Palestine are seeing their dreams of Arab independence being thwarted by the Great Powers and protest against Jewish immigration are gathering pace. 

 

'A unique and beautifully written insight into the centrality of Bethlehemite and Palestinian culture in today's troubled world' - Professor Tom Selwyn, SOAS
