Product description

Review

A novel set in modern Lebanon dealing with women's lives in the shadow of war and displacement. The first part tells of a woman who returns to the village of her childhood and her recollections of family life before the war. Part two, which is also before the war, is set in Beirut and is about a privileged childhood and a friendship with a Palestinian refugee. Finally, part three concerns a woman who goes to Australia with her husband and embarks on a totally new life. It is a very moving, quiet novel written with great elegance and much compassion. An excellent fiction debut for a new writer who was born in Australia and now lives in Beirut.

About the Author
