Somewhere, Home

paperback    ISBN 13: 9780007221943 | ISBN 10: 0007221940

This remarkable novel, winner of the Commonwealth Writersí Prize, tells the story of three women, each of them far from where they came, all of whom are still searching for somewhere that can be called home.
 
Maysa returns to the house that was her grandparentsí when she was a child, in a village high on the slopes of Mount Lebanon. Aida, who has long since left the country of her birth, returns in search of the Palestinian refugee who was a second father to her when she was a child. And Salwa, now an old woman, recalls her life from her hospital bed, surrounded by her family but still, in some sense, far from home.
